The Prime Minister is to 
propose that fanners in 
Britain and the rest of Europe 
take land put of production to 
rid the Common Market of its 
£8.7 billion food mountains. 

In a courageous bid to 
tackle a crisis which European 
leaders have been dodging for 
years, die will fight hard to 
impose Ibis British last-resort 
solution at 'a crucial EEC 
summit meeting in London 
next month. 

Mrs Thatcher will insist that 
only modest cuts will be 
necessary to slay the monster 
that the Common Agricultural 
Policy (CAP) has become. 

However, The Times can , 
reveal that, at the same time, a 
devastating ; report is beiigt 
prepared by the original archi- 
tect of the . CAP who claims 
that the crisis is now so 
desperate that 20 per cent of 
farming land — both good and 
marginal. - should be taken 
out of production. 

Mrs Thatcher is anxious to 
resolve the food surplus crisis 
before Britain tends over the 
Presidency of the EEC Coun- 
cil of Ministers to Belgium on 
December 31. 

The summit on December 
5 and 6 , will be the last chance 
to fulfil her pledge that the 
CAP bull would be taken by.

Presidency. - 
Sources dose to Mrs 
Thatcher said yesterday that 
the British proposal of a. 
reduction in the amount of 
fanning land to cut produc- 
tion in beef by about 1 per 
cent, milk by 3 per cent and 
cereal by 5 per cent, had a 
good chance of being ap- 
proved eventually. 

The indications are, how- 
ever, that Mrs Thatcher will

fail to get agreement at the 
summit, although sources are 
optimistic that she will at least 
succeed in launching the pro- 
cess for decisions to be made 
early next year. 

Mis Thatcher is eager to put 
ter stamp on the Presidency 
but hopes of a deal are being 
thwarted by Chancellor Kohl 
of West Germany. He is firing 
elections in January and is 
reluctant to agree u> any 
decision that could turn form- 
ers against him. 

One Whitehall source said 
yesterday: “All we want at the 
moment is to keep the Ger- 
mans happy and prevent than 
from saying *no’ to our pro- 
posals. If they won’t say ‘yes’. 


vinced that the only prac- 
ticable option loft to stop the 
CAP from running out of 
control may now have to be to 
cut the amount of fond avail- 
able for production. Bui Brit 
ish officials believe that only s 
small reduction is needed. 

Dr Skxo Mansholt, the 
former Dutch . Agriculture 
Minister and ex-President of 
the European Commission, 
whose vision of a fair price 
deal for formers formed the 
basis of the CAP more than 25 
years ago and who is now 
preparing the report calling for 
a 20 per cent cut in farmland, 
told The Times in an inter- 
view that only this sort of 
drastic action would save the 
CAP from collapse. 

He said: “No one believed 
when we set up the CAP that 
there would be such surpluses 
Now we have to get rid of 
them and the only choice is to 
make one-fifth of the land 
fellow." 

But, according to sources, 
Mrs Thatcher does not believe 
that a 20 per cent cut is 
necessary. 

One source said yesterday: 
“We're only talking about a 
very modest change to correct 
huge waste. We’d ratter do it 
through prices or by limiting 
the open-ended guarantees for 
formers, but that could cause 
political problems.

production throigh pnce then

Tebbit will 
write to 
5m voters 

By Nicholas Wood 

Political Reporter 

Five million of “Thatcher’s 
children" are to get a letter 
from Mr Norman Tebbit next 
year as part of a massive vote- 
catching drive by the Conser- 
vative Party in toe run-up to 
the next election. 

The first-time voters will be 
told by the Tory chairman 
about toe Government’s plans 
to Improve job prospects and 
expand opportunities for edu- 
cation and training — their 
chief concerns, according to 
The Times/MQRI poll of toe 
18 to 25 age group carried out 
in toe summer. 

They will also be asked their 
views about the problems 
feeing Britain and how they 
might be tackled. They will 
also be invited to join the 
Conservative Party. 

The success of direct mail 
operations by Conservative 
Central Office during the past 
three months — it recruited 
500 new members a week — 
has persuaded strategists to 
put the operation on a na- 
tional footing in toe New 
Year. 

They plan to mail 10 mil- 
lion homes and reach an 
audience of 1 6 million people. 

In addition to the first-time 
voters, targets groups will 
include shareholders in newly 
privatized companies such as 
British Telecom and British 
Gas, householders in the 25 to 
35 age group, and professional 
groups such as doctors, teach- 
ers, nurses and farmers.

Top secretaries have broken 
through the £15.000 a year 
barrier and can now expect a

according to a secretarial

After a deafening official 
silence lasting more than 20 
years, toe Soviet Union has in 
recent weeks begun toe painful 
process of coming to public 
terms with toe mass terror of 
the Stalin era, a subject pre- 
viously kept under wraps , on 
strict Kremlin orders. 

The first sign of a change 
more significant than any* 

ihingsofer seen in Mr Gorba- 
chov’s cultural thaw came 
with the limited release of 
Repentance, a remarkable film 
which for the fust time deals 
frankly - if in allegorical form 

- with the horrors of Soviet ' 
lift during toe purges. 

Now showing to semed . 

audiences in MdscoWj toe film 
will be released during the 
next few weeks, having al- 
ready received approval from - 
senior ideologues in toe 
Kremlin hierarchy. 

- *^t is probably, the most sen- 
sational film 10 have appeared 


here in my lifetime; It is vir- 
tually impossible to get a tic- 
ket," one Moscow film enthu- 
siast in her eariy 30s said. 

The film, a subtle blend of 
foci and fiction by the .well- 
known -director Tengiz. Abu- 
ladze, {from Stalin's native 
Republic of Georgia) drives 
home the previously un- 
mentionable message that the 
Soviet Union has yet to 
acknowledge openly the full 
horrors of Stalinism. Soviet 
audiences claim the central 
villam, although unidentified, 
is dearly recognizable as 
Stalin's ruthless chief of secret 
police, Lavrenti Beria. 

In one telling scene, a win- 
dow is shown where prisoners’ 
famili es are told whether they 
can correspond with prison- 
ers. Among the last names 
read oui are toe real names of 
Georgian intellectuals mur- 
deredduring the Stalinist per- 
iod. : 


Moscow - Mr Gorbachov last 
night said that “the day is not 
for off" when there woold be 
an agreed political settlement 
to fte Afghanistan qaestioa, 
leading to a withdrawal of toe 
Soviet troops. (Christopher 
Walker writes). 

The remarks have increased 
speculation that his visit to 
Asia may be used to branch 
new moves on Afgh a n i s tan 
and other Asian issues. 
Gorbachov visits Delhi, page 9 

The release of the film, 
already showing to packed 
cinemas in Tbilisi, the Geor- 
gian capital, has coincided 
with an equally sensational 
move in the Soviet literary 
world, toe public announce- 
ment that a major autobio- 
graphical novel about toe Sta- 
lin era. The Children of the Ar- 
bat, is to be published here 
text spring. . 

Written by Anatoli- Ryba- 


kov, aged 75, an author best 
known for his adventure sto- 
ries and children's books, it is 
set in 1934 and is described by 
the author as a “group port- 
rait" of his generation. 

The book is due to appear in 
the magazine Druzhha Narod- 
ov (Friendship of the Peoples), 
one of the Soviet monthlies 
that introduce important lit- 
erary works before their pub- 
lication in book form. The an- 
nouncement that the novel 
will appear in its April, May 
and June issues is understood 
to have been sanctioned at a 
. high level in the Kremlin. 

According to those who 
have . read the manuscript, 
which has been in preparation 
for some 20 years, the novel 
presents toe dictator Stalin as 
a central character, stripped of 
toe carefully rewritten nistory 
and official myth that, in-toe 
Soviet Union, has long sur- 
rounded his true behaviour. 


Despite toe de-Stal miration 
programme of toe late 1950s, 
toe Stalinist period, which in- 
cluded mass political arrests 
before and after the Second 
World War, has been very 
much a dosed subject 

Leading figures in Mos- 
cow’s cultural world have 
compared the sudden change 
in official attitude towards 
works on Stalin with the brief 
period in the early 1 960s when 
Khrushchev allowed publica- 
tion of Alexander Solzhenit- 
syn's novel about the infam- 
ous Stalinist labour camps. 
One Day in the Life of Ivan 
Denisovich. 

According to literary 
sources, one driving force be- 
hind toe recent liberalization 
has been Mr Gorbachov’s 
wife. Raisa, who was last week 
elected the only female mem- 
ber of toe II -strong governing 
board of the Cultural Fund, a 
new organization devoted to 
supporting the arts. 


An extraordinary secret deal 
under which Mr Peter Wright, 
the former senior MI5 officer, 
was paid "substantial sums" 
in royalties for a book on the 
Security service by Mr Chap- 
man Pincher, toe author, can 
be disclosed by The Times 
today. 

Until now. it was believed 
that Mr Wright's sole motive 
for helping Mr Pincher to 
write his book. Their Trade is 
Treachery , in late 1980 was 
that of a crusader exposing 
alleged traitors inside MI 5 in 
an attempt to clean up British 
intelligence. 

However, he had another 
motive which was money. 
Under a secret arrangement 
with Mr Pincher. 50 per cent 
of toe royalties from toe book 
was to be paid to a front 
company of “consultants". 
There was only one consultant 
and that was Mr Wright 

The revelation that Mr 
Wright was paid “thousands 
of pounds" for collaborating 
with Mr Pincher for his book 
which was filled with classi- 
fied information, could swing 
the court case in Sydney the 
Government’s way. 

This week Mr Wright is 
expected to appear in toe 
witness box for toe first time 
in toe New South Wales 
Supreme Court in the case 
brought by toe Government to 
stop the publication of his 
book. The Spy Catcher. 

Details of his collaboration 
with Mr Pincher for Their 
Trade is Treachery and a 
secret trip he made to Britain 
in August 1980 which was 
paid for by a good friend of 
his. Lend Rothschild, him sell 


a former MI5 officer, may 
then emerge. 

Yesterday Mr William 
Armstrong, managing director 
of Sidgwick & Jackson, which 
published Mr Fincher’s book, 
told The Times: “The book 
was commissioned in a per- 
fectly normal way. Half the 
royalties were paid to Mr 
Pincher, the other half to a 
company whose name I had 
been given. I was not aware of 
the existence of Mr Wright" 

Mr Pincher yesterday said 
that when be met Mr Wright 
at a secret address in this 
country for a few hours in 
AiJ^ust 1980, the former MT5 
officer told him he was writing 
a book about treachery in the 
secret services, including the 
case of Sir Roger Hollis, the 
former director-general of 
MI5, and bad completed sev- 
eral chapters. 

Mr Pincher told The Times: 
“Wright said that he and his 
wife Lois who did his typing, 
were finding the book too 
laborious and he wanted a 
professional writer whom he 
could trust to complete it on 
toe understanding that he 
would get 50 per cent of the 
royalties. 

“I told him that 1 could not 
possibly be involved in giving 
him money but that if a book 
was feasible and a reputable 
publisher could be found, it 
would be normal practice for 
half the royalties to be paid to 
him, provided I was not 
involved in the payments in 
any way." 

The meeting between Mr 
Pincher and Mr Wright had 
been arranged by Lord Roth-

Enrile replaced in 
Philippines crisis 

From Keith Dalton and David Watts, Manila 


President Aquino yesterday 
replaced her rebellious de- 
fence minister, Mr Juan Ponce 
Enrile, after a night of political 
tension and coup rumours, 
and accepted the resignation 
of her entire Cabinet. 

Sbe announced the mass 
shake-up of her nine-month- 
old Government on national 
television after a seven -hour 
Cabinet meeting. 

The resignation of Mr 
Enrile, who had long been 
rumoured to be plotting a 
coup against Mrs Aquino, 
ended temporarily toe worst 
crisis of her tide, which 
peaked on Saturday night with 
soldiers securing Parliament, 
radio and television stations 
and communication centres 
on toe President’s orders. 

Mrs Aquino said Mr Rafael 
Ileio, a 66 -year-old military 
and diplomatic veteran , 
would replace toe outspoken 
Mr Enrile. 


At his home in a Manila 
suburb, Mr Enrile said it was a 
relief to be out of politics. He 
laid journalists: “Let someone 
else worry about toe Govern- 
ment." His wife and family 
also seemed happy with toe 
idea that he had left politics 
after 20 years. Mr Ennie was 
visited by a succession of 
generals, some of them in 
uniform. Another caller was 
toe Vice-President, Mr Sal- 
vador Laurel. 

The President's three- 
minute speech, in mid-after- 
noon, came after toe chief of 
toe armed forces. General 
Fidel Ramos, told all military 
commanders to disregard any 
orders coming from the de- 
fence ministry, and an- 
nounced a foiled plot by 
supporters of the deposed 
President, Mr Ferdinand Mar- 
cos. to seize toe defunct 
national assembly. An Enrile

£2.75m to tighten housing security 




Soldiers hurt in Drive to cut council estate crime r to tunnel 


IRA bomb raid 

Five soldiers were injured yesterday, now seriously, 
when the Provisional IRA fired five home-made mortar 
bombs into the middle of the fortified police and army post 
at Middletown, south Armagh, on the Irish border. The 
mortars were launched from a van about 300 yards away, 
across the border in the repnbfic’s Co M ona g h a n . 

Only four of the five bombs exploded inside the pobce 
and army compound. There were no casualties from the 
Royal Ulster Constabulary Iwt the soldiers were hit by fly- 
ing debris. Two were takes to hospital. 

The van in which the mortar tubes were mounted caught 
fire almost immediately after the breakfast time attack. It 
was either horned by the attackers or by the premature 
detonation of a booby-trap device designed to catch 
members of the security forces. Irish police cordoned off 
the area around the wreck for several hoars. 

UDM poll decision 

A total of 31 delegates from the Union iff Democratic 
Miners are almost certain to rate to pot up their own par- 
liamentary nifldidftte to fight LaboHr in file important 
mi ning constituency of Mansfield, now Labour-held. 

The move is retaliation for the refusal of the Labour 
Party to recognize the UDM, and the selection of Mr Alan 
Meaie. a left-winger, to replace Mr Don C o nc a im on, t he 
retiring MP in the Labour-held seat. He had a majority iff 
2,216. The UDM has said it may also put np rival 
candi dates in Bassetlaw, AshfiekL and Sherwood. The 
UDMsavs its own candidate coaid win Mansfield, or let in 
the Conservatives, and destroy Labour’s chances in the 

other constituencies.

A £2.75 million programme 
to liglien security on 12 
crime-ridden urban council 
estates will be announced 
today by Mr John Patten, the 
Minister for Housing. 

The programme is designed 
to protect tenants by putting 
obstacles in the way of would- 
be thieves and assailants and 
to step up the drive against 
homelessness by upgrading 
hard-to-let flats. 

At present, people would 
pr efe r to go on a council 
bousing waiting list than take 
one of 115,000 empty prop- 
erties on nm-down, vandal- 
ized estates. 


Inquiry is 
ordered 
on bailing 
by courts 

By Philip Webster 
Chief Political 
Correspondent \ 

The Government has or- 
dered a study into the way 
courts grant bail after what it 
regards as an alarming rise in 
the number of remand pris- 
oners exacerbating the accom- 
modation crisis in jails. 

Figures published last week 
in the Home Office's criminal 
statistics for England and 
Wales show wide regional 
variations in custody rates. 

Last year 9,700 prisoners, or 
about 20 per cent of the total 
were on remand, mainly un- 
tried. Since 1978 the prison 
population has risen by about 
4,500. of which about 4,000 
were in the “untried" pop- 
ulation. 

Remand prisoners also put 
a disproportionate strain on 
the system. They are accorded 
special privileges, including 
the right to wear their own 
clothes and to receive regular 
visitors. 

Because their cases are 
“live” they are regularly vis- 
ited by solicitors, and have to 
be accompanied on trips to 
and from the courts. 

Although the Government 
cannot interfere with the pow- 
ers of the courts to remand 
people in custody or on bail, 
the Home Office has sent 
circulars to magistrates 
emphasizing the alternatives 
to remanding in custody, such 
as bail and remanding for 
special social reports. 

But ministers believe that 
the spirit of the Bail Act, 
which establishes the pre- 
supposition that defendants 
will get bail unless there is 
good reason for them not to, is 
not being observed by some 
magistrates. 

In a recent report the Prison 
Reform Trust referred to the 
“bad lottery", suggesting that 
whether bail was granted de- 
pended on where the case took 
place. 

Ministers have asked the 
research and planning unit of 
the Home Office to carry out 
an inquiry on the variations 
between chosen areas to see 
whether they are justified. 

Ministers could issae 
tougher guidance to the courts 
if they are unhappy with the 
inquiry. 



A unique employment service based on trust 

Many people think of The Corps only as 
providing uniformed staff 
Whilst this is our main business, ive also 
provide qualified non-uni formed staff on a 
permanent basis as office managers, 
building services managers: administration 
officers, estate supervisors and caretakers, 
warehouse controllers.' receptionists, 
registry and post room personnel and 
many other similar posts. And because 
these functions are carried out in the 
Services, our men and women have 
thoroughexperience in theseareas. 



Ministers believe that such 
accommodation can be made 
more desirable by redesigning 
it to repel invades. 

. ■ Measures such as entry 
phones, sew doors and locks 
and improved lighting will be 
carried out on four estates in 
Loudon — at Brent, Lewi- 
sham, Southwark and 
Wandsworth. 

Other caiget areas include 
estates in Derby, Leicester, 
Sheffield, South Tyneside, 
Gateshead and Langbaurgh in 
Cleveland. . 

The work of “hardening” 
the estates will be supervised 
by the Urban Housing Re- 
newal Unit in conjunction 
with local authorities. The 


unit’s budget for next year 
from the Department of 
Environment has recently 
been in crease d from £50 mil- 
lion to £75 million. 

About £227,000 wffl be 
spent on 400 homes in four 
1 1 -storey tower bkx&s.on the 
Silwood estate in Lewisham. 
The money will be spent on 
video entry phones, new locks 
on doors and windows and 
better lighting. Entry lobbies 
wifi also be redesigned and 
special screens wfil befitted to 
balconies to stop intruders 

ahsailmg down buildings tO 

gamentiy. 

On -one low-rise block on 
foe Gaywood estate in South- 
walk, doors operated by an 


will be fitted 


To date, the unit has spent 
£39 m illi on on ref urbishing 
run-down council property 
and giving tenants a voice in 
estate management, but only a 
email proportion has gone on 
crime prevention meas ure s.

‘Syllabus reform’ 
to curb leftists 

By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 


A radical plan to impose a 
national curriculum on 
Britain's schools is being 
drawn up by a group of right- 
wing ministers and back- 
benchers for inclusion in the 
Conservative Party manifesto 
for the next election. 

The move is part of the 
gathering Conservative as- 
sault on local authority con- 
trol over education. It is 
intended to curtail drastically 
the powers of councillors to 
influence the shape and con- 
tent of lessons. 

It is particularly aimed at 
left-wing councils intent on 
promoting a progressive ap- 
proach to matters such as sex 
education, nuclear weapons 
and political education in the 
classroom at the expense of 
traditional subjects. 

The group behind the plan 
believes that on present trends 
many inner city Labour coun- 
cils will become “ungovern- 
able”. 

The plan for a curriculum 
determined by the Depart- 
ment 'of Education and Sci- 
ence, covering about 85 per 
cent of the timetable and' 
spelling out both the relative 
balance between subjects and 
their content is dosely related 
to other moves recently dis- 
closed in The Times: 

• A transfer of control over 
school budgets from local 
education authorities to newly 
constituted boards of gov- 
ernors. 

• The break-up of big coun- 
cils, especially the London 
boroughs, into smaller, more 
manageable units with tittle 
more than “parish pump" 
responsibilities. 

The changes are being fed to 
the so-called A team of senior 


Cabinet ministers drafting the 
manifesto. 

Ministers pressing for the 
changes believe that by break- 
ing local authority control 
over schools they can create 
an education system that both 
relieves parental anxieties 
about academic and disci- 
plinary standards and re- 
sponds to their wishes about 
how sensitive matters should 
be dealt with in the classroom. 

They recognize that then- 
proposals will also weaken the 
powers of shire councils, but 
believe they have no option. 

Of the three interlocking 
proposals being canvassed 
only one, the plan for budget- 
ary autonomy, steins directly 
from the manifesto working 
group on education, chaired 
by Mr Kenneth Baker, Sec- 
retary of State for Education 
and Science. 

But the other two are likely 
to be greeted with favour by 
the Prime Minister. 

A paper produced by the 
group envisages the setting up 
of a 20-member national 
curriculum council made up 
of local authority repre- 
sentatives to advise the Sec- 
retary of State. 

• Teachers should not re- 
gard a system of performance 
assessment as a weapon to be 
used against them, Mrs Angela 
Rumbold. Minister of Stole 
for Education, told a con- 
ference in London yesterday 
(Our Education Reporter 
writes). 

‘ Appraisal was not a weapon 
for weeding out the incom- 
petent, but a chance for every 
teacher to reflect on how he or . 
she could improve perfor- 
mance in the classroom, she 
said. . 


Tenders for collecting 
refuse ‘may save £ 80 m’ 


By Kenneth Gosling 


Competitive tendering for 
refuse collection services by 
local authorities in England 
and Wales could lead to 
potential savings as high as 
£80 million a year, according 
to a new survey published in 
the November issue of Fiscal 
Studies. 

It claims that the scope for 
generating savings in costs, 
without loss in the quality of 
service to householders, is 
enormous. 

The researchers — Simon 
Domberger, of the London 
Business School, and Shirley 
Meadowcroft and David - 


Thompson, of the Institute for 
Fiscal Studies - say compel- , 
itive tendering has already ! 
reduced costs by an average of j 
22 per cent in the case of 38 : 
out of more than 400 authori- j 
ties which use this system. 

Their findings are based on 1 
a detailed econometric in- 
vestigation of waste collection 
statistics for England and 
Wales in 1983-84 and 1984- 
85. They say these have 
important implications for the 
controversial proposals to ex-, 
tend competitive tendering 
announced recently in die 
Queen's Speech. 


Architects 
in power 
struggle 

By Charles Kneritt - 
Architecture Correspondent 

The bitter struggle for 
leadership of 27,000 members 
of the Royal* Institute of 
British Architects comes to a 
head tonight when the official 
presidential candidate, ‘ Mr 
Raymond Andrews, meets his 
challenger, Mr Rod Hackney, 
in a public debate in London. 

Although . many members 
outside the capital see its role 
either as a Londo n du b for 
partners in private practice or, 
at best, an expensive irrele- 
vance, more than 10,000 are 
expected to cast their vote by 
the time polling doses next 
week. The result will be 
announced on December 10. 

Apathy has been cast aside 
as each candidate has lobbied 
hard on conflicting policies: 
Mr Andrews is committed to 
preserving the status quo with 
minor reforms, and Mr Hack- 
ney is provocatively promis- 
ing to rock the boat on a 
radical ticket which could see 
the departure of the institute 
secretory, Mr Patrick Har- 
rison. 

Mr Andrews's manifesto 
includes setting up regional 
practice bureaux. 

He organized the institute's 
Festival of Architecture in 
1984, celebrating its 150th 
anni versary. The event is 
perhaps best remembered for 
the Prince of Wales’ con- 
troversial speech about “car- 
buncles” and “stumps". - 

Mr Hackney is a commu- 
nity architect, as well as a 
successful developer ' and 
house-builder, and one of the 
architectural advisers to the 
prince. 

He is campaigning on re- 
form of the construction in- 
dustry lobby, the Group of 
Eight, more schools of 
architecture, a stronger re- 
gional and branch structure 
and long-term reform. 

Mr Richard Rogers, last 
year's Royal Gold medalist for 
architecture. Mr Michael 
Manser, immediate past-pres- 
ident of the institute, Mr Colin 
Stansfield Smith, Hampshire 
county architect, and Mr Fred 
Roche, of consultants Conran 
Roche back Mr Andrews. 

Mr Hackney’s supporters 
include Sir Hugh Casson, Mr 
Cedric Price, Mr Keith Scott, 
chairman of the country’s 
largest multi-disciplinary 
practice, BDP, and .his run- 
ning-mate. Mr David Rock, 
banned from attendiqg meet- 
ings of the institute's policy 
committee over his support 
for the unofficial candidate. :

to pay 
rates for locums 


Goose patrol guards Christmas trees 

yy.X 


Health aufoorities are being 
forced to pay huge sums to 
private locum agencies pro- 
viding temporary medical 
cover as more doctors opt for 
high private rates. 

Hospitals are paying op to 
three, times the amount they 
would pay for doctors under 
the National Health Service 
system and the charges are 
spiralling. One health auth- 
ority said that agency fees had 
completely wiped out all the 
savings it had made through 
putting other services out to 
tender. 

Mr Phillip Hamblin, deputy 
unit administrator at West 
Hill Hospital, Dartford, said: 
“It is a seller's market. The 
agencies know that we can't 
find any locums so they can 
charge what they like. 7 ’ 

The National Association of 
Health Authorities (Naha) has 
now asked the Department of 
Health and Social Security to 
impose fixed rates to stop 
agencies further pushing up 
charges, now between £9 and 
£12 an hour. 

That would be backed up by 
a register so that the NHS 
could only use agencies 
operating the set rates. 

A recent Naha survey 
showed that 56 out of 8S 
health authorities used private 
agencies at a cost of up to 
£250,000 a year. 

Until now most health - 
authorities have been able to 
recruit locums — doctors who 
worit for temporary periods to 
fill in for holidays or sickness 
or where a post cannot be 
filled — by advertising locally 


By J31 Sherman . 

or through the British Medical 
Journal 

But now doctors, attracted 
by earning of at least twice 
the NHS rate and travel 
expenses, are registering with 
agencies. 

Some doctors are setting up 
their own agencies to reap the 
agency fee. “Locum agencies 
are being set up by a doctor 
who is the only doctor an the 
agency’s books," Mr Brian 
Aisbitt, district general man- 
ager at South Tyneside Health 
Authority, sakL 

Last financial year South 
Tyneside spent £40,000 on 
locums. This year tire district 
has already spent £72,000. 

Over the past three months 
West. Hill Hospital has ad- 
vertised for 15 locums for 
different specialities, at 
mainly senior house officer 
grades. 

Ten advertisements at- 
tracted no applicants at alL 

The hospital is now paying 
£719 per week for each senior 
house officeriocum through a 
local agency, instead of £292 a 
week. 

Mr Hamblin said that some 
doctors he approached said 
they would only take the job if 
they were hired through an 
agency. 

The dearth of locums has 
been exacerbated by a short- 
age ofjunior doctors, many of 
whom ‘ now opt for general 
practice, reductions in junior 
doctors' hours and new regula- 
tions applying to overseas 
doctors which limit them to a 
four-year study period in this 
country. 


One regional health 
authority, using a number of 
private agencies, is paying 141 
per cent more for a senior 
house officer on a special rota. 

For a 104-hour week the 
authority pays £1,045 
locum on average, u 
£433 under the NHS. 

The doctor gets £10 instead 
of £4 an hour, roughly 80 per 
cent of the agency fee. Week- 
end work is even more expen- 
sive. with the authorii 
21 J per cent over the 

For working from 5pm on 
Friday to 9am on Monday, a 
consultant can earn £724, 
when he would only get £291 
through, tire NHS. The region 
has to pay out £906 for his 
services. - 

The health authorities, in 
trying to make efficiency sav- 
ings and avoid cuts in patient 
services, are trying to get 
round the problem in various 
way. 

Trent Regional Health 
Authority has set up its own 
computerized locum bank, 
partly to save money and 
partly to ensure some land of 
qualrty control. 

Instead of having to apply 
for advertisements m the Brit- 
ish Medical Journal doctors 
can register with the bank after 
going through a rigorous vet- 
ting procedure. 

“Vetting isa very important 
part of the exerase, with a 
private agency you never 
know who is going to turn up. 
We reject 10% of those that are 
supplied," Mr Roger Arkfll, 
the regional manpower plan- 
ning officer said.

National credit 
register closer 


By Michael Dynes 

Britain’s financial institu- 
tions are moving towards the 
establishment of a national 
register which will eventually 
record all personal credit 
transactions and monitor the 
progress of existing financial 
commitments. 


The register would enable 
all subscribing financial in- 
stitutions to check a prospec- 
tive borrower’s credit profile 
before granting any aridrttnngi 
loans or crediL 

Advocates of the scheme 
say that the register would 
. minimise tire risks^aH cred- 
itors face in making bad loans 
and reduce borrowers' ability 
to over-extend themselves, a 
problem recently highlighted 
in The Times Homefiont 
series. 

At present there are two 
credit reference agencies, die 
United Association for the 
Protection of Trade and Con-

which supply details on 
prospective borrowers to subs- 
cribers. 

Information is obtained 
from the county courts, the 
bankruptcy register and from 
financial records of subscrib- 
ing credit companies. 

Subscribers include most of 
the leading finance houses, in- 
store retail credit cards and 
mail order catalogues. 

But the register is only 
partially effective because a 
□umber of large creditors, 
including the main banks and 
their credit subsidiaries. Ac- 
cess and Visa, have been 
reluctant to supply the credit 
agencies with information on 
their customers for fear of 
jeopardising the confidential- 
ity of the tradi tonal customer- 
bank relationship. 


But as a result of pressure 
from the Office of Fair Trad- 
. ing the banks have agreed in 
principle to supply informa- 
tion on customer defaults and 
are negotiating how that will 
be provided. 

Some building societies 
have also expressed interest in 
participating in the credit 
reference system. 

While most creditors ^ seem 
to be reconrified towards the 
establishment of a national 
audit register; dvU liberties

organizations have ex p re sse d 


reservations about the form 
such a system may eventually 
take.. 

Mr FhiHp Cook, Marketing 
eer of * 


the trade protec- 
tion association however, said 
that such anxieties are 
misplaced. . . 

“The credit industry is fre- 
quently criticized for granting 
credit unwisely, and regarded 
with suspicion when it seeks 
information on borrowers’ 
existing commitments,” he 
said. 

“But if society wishes to use 
credit extensively, it has to be 
prepared for this kind of 
information to be held on a 
national basis.” 

The Office of Fair Trading 
endorsed that view by point- 
ing to the benefits a national 
register could offer creditors 
eager to avoid making unwise 
loans, and borrowers who 
would benefit from an institu- 
tional constraint on their 
propensity to over-extend 
themselves. 

h added: “There is no doobt 
that we will get a national 
credit register in the end, 
though we will be many years 
behind other countries”. 


Wine labels may have

Wine labels may eventually producers can use alk al is such

European Parliament’s 
environment committee is 
adopted by the EEC in Brus- 
sels. 

At present the EEC allows a 
wide range of additives and 
other substances to be used in 
wines, including sulphur as a 
preservative, cultured yeasts 
to control fermentation, 1 
chemicals to feed yeasts, tar- 
trates to precipitate acids, 
tannin to preserve red wine, 
sulphate to reduce

Sulphur dioxide, a common 
preservative in white wine, 
can worsen the condition of 
asthmatics and pose some 
health risk, while diabetics are 
affected by the amounts of 
residual sugar in wines which 
can be considerable even 
when they are “dry" . 

Hitherto the EEC has re-

Schools to 
get facts 
on Aids 

The Government is taking 
urgent action to ensure that 
school teachers give pupils afl 
the facts on the dangers of 
acquired immune 
syndrome (Aids). 

It wants to expand Aids 
teaching techniques by “get- 
ting every available feet about 
the virus into the hands of 
teachers” so they can satisfac- 
torily answer children’s ques- 
tions. 

The Department of Edu- 
cation and Science said yes- 
terday that the Government 
was considering com- 
missioning an inde pend ent 
body to prepare detailed guid- 
ance material for the project. 

At present teachers use a 
booklet. Children at School 
and Problems related to Aids. 
circulated by the department 
in June. The new detailed 
material wfll be compiled in 
consultation with the Depart- 
ment of Health and Social 
Security. 

All secondary schools win 
take part. The Government 
may also extend the project to 
middle schools to reach youn- 
ger children 

The project will com- 
plement the Government’s 
£20 million warning cam- 
l begins today. The 
it of Education 
said: “We are looking at the 
best way of playing a part in 
the general Aids campaign. 

There have already been 
565 cases of Aids in Britain 
and 384 deaths. It is estimated 
that at least another 30,000 
people are earners. 

The Government ca mp aign

could arise from the disease. 

The leaflet informs workers 
that people dismissed because 
they are Aids carriers or 
suspected of carrying the dis- 
ease will be able to appeal to 
an industrial tribunal. 

A free-phone advice cam-

The directors of Channel 4 
will meet on Tuesday to dis- 
cuss foe channel's future (Our

The meeting comes anrid 
indications that the Govern- 
ment would like to see the 
network split away from foe 
control of the independent 
television system. 

No dedsions are Bkdy to be 
taken by the 16-meraber

deeply divided over a proposal 
that the channel be tmned into

ing ITV companies. 

It is thought that foe

Drug detectives start course on cash 


By Stewart Temfler 
Crime Reporter 
Two dozen detectives from 

drug squads across Britain will 

today will today start a course 
in investigative accountancy 
and receivership in prepara- 
tion for foe new Act allowing 
confiscation of drug traf- 
fickers' assets. 

For the next two weeks the 
detective* will be taught how 
to trace and freeze assets by 
soeakm expected , to include 


one of the National Union of 

Mineworkere sequestrators. 

The course at the Metro- 
politan Police training centre 
in Hendon, north London, 
wfll be the first of several to be 
held over the next lew 
months. 

The detectivesare attending 
foe course to prepare for the 
full implementation of the 
Drug Trafficking Offences Act 
in the new year. 

A similar course for their 


counterparts in the customs 
investigation branch is also 
under way this week. A unit of 
1 5 has already been trained. 

The Act allows for the 
seizure and freezingof assets 
when arrests of traffickers or 
dealers are made. 

Although the Act is aimed 
at Ing criminals it could be 
applied to all dealers. Last 
year 4,900 offenders were 
cautioned or convicted for 
dealing. 


Both the police and senior 
customs officials ackow ledge 
that the new Act is going to 
mean that the special asset 
tracking teams will have to 
-work alongside the normal 
investigating teams from the 
start of an operation. 

By the time the customs 
officers have completed their 
training and all units are in 
place they should have about 
45 officers available. 


Delinquency research 


More jobs ‘may cut crime’ 


By Pieter Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 

Young people are more youths with lower status jobs, 
likely to commit crime when But there was little difference 
they are out of work, accord- between crime rates just be- 
fore leaving school and just 
afterwards in full-time 


ing to a research study. 

An investigation of crime 
and delinquency among more 
than 400 males which began 
when they were aged eight and 
continues now they are 31-32 
has delved into their pasts to 
see the effect of 
unemployment. 

A fell in youth unemploy- 
ment “might have benefits in 
reducing crime,” researchers 
from the Institute of 
Criminology, Cambridge 
University say. 

Crime rates were higher 
during periods of unemploy- 
mem than of employment, 
according to their article in 
The British Journal of Crim- 
inology. 

That was particularly true 
for offences involving ma- 
terial gain, at the younger ages 
(15-16), for the most defin- 
quent-proDe youths, and for 


in tun-time em- 
ployment 

Joblessness did not seem to 
cause basically law-abiding 
youths to commit crimes. 

“The relation with crime 
was greatest for those who 
were the most predisposed 
towards offending.” 

The study has developed a 
method of predicting crimin- 
ality at the age of 10. Seven 
factors are involved: three are 
measures of bad behaviour; 
others are social handicap 
(including low income, poor 
bousing and big families); 
poor parental child-rearing 
(including cruelty or neglect, 
erratic discipline and parental 
conflict); low verbal intelli- 
gence; and convicted parents. 

Unemployment associated 
with a history of lower status 
jobs was related to a high 


offending rate, unlike un- 
employment among people 
with higher status work. 

Surprisingly, the offending 
rate was lower during un- 
employment caused by dis- 
missal than during unemploy- 
ment caused by other reasons, 
but the difference was not sig- 
nificant. 

At the time they were first 
contacted the boys were all 
living in a working class area 
of London. The study on 
unemployment investigated 
the official crime rates of the 
boys between their fourteenth 
birthday and an interview at 
18 yean seven months, 
according to whether they 
were at school, in full-time 
employment, or unemployed. 

The Cambridge Study in 
Delinquent Development be- 
gan in 1962 and has included 
tests and interviews with the 
subjects by psychologists and 
social science graduates at 
various intervals over the 
years. 


Parents seek rights in Strasbourg 


The Government is to be 
challenged at the European 
Court of Human Rights in 
Strasbourg tomorrow by five 
parents who claim their rights 
were violated by the laws 
under which children are 
taken into care (Our Legal 
Affairs Correspondent writes). 

The cases have already been 
before the European Commis- 
sion of Human Rights which, 
in its confidential report. 


found breaches of various 
articles of the European 
Convention on human rights 
in all five. 

The cases concern the right 
of parents to have access to 
their children in local 
authority care and their right 
to challenge local authorities* 
refusal to grant access, if 
necessary, through the courts. 

In all the cases, which come 


from Essex, Birmingham, 
London, Gloucestershire, and 
Liverpool, the parents were 
denied access to their children 
when they wanted iL 

They were unable to chal- 
lenge those decisions through 
foe courts in breach of Article 
Six of the European Conven- 
tion, which guarantees a right 
of access to a court to deter- 
mine civil rights.

‘Band Aid’ for inner cities 
to be announced by Prince 


The Prince of Wales will 
announce a “Band Aid for the 
uijCT cities" on Thursday. 
JJ«ng his involvement with 
Bntajn’s housing problems a 
step further. 

t- Thc .£™F e hopes his initia- 
tive w,n help unemployed and 
padly housed people in the 
inner city in the same way that 
Bob Geklofs campaign has 
helped the starving in Africa. 

A group called the Inner 
City Trust is being formed at 
the Prince's instigation to help 
community groups carry out 
building, youth and employ- 
ment projects. 

The Prince will be patron of 
the trust Trustees include 
Cord Scarman, author of the 
repon on the Bruton riots, 
Evelyn de Rothschild, mer- 
chant banker, and Sir Frank 
Layfield. QC, who recently 
conducted the SizeweU nuc- 
lear power station inquiry. 

The Prince is to launch his 
venture in London at a con- 
ference, “Building Com- 
munities”, the first 
international conference on 
community architecture, 
planning and design. 

He will also announce the 
second year of the Commu- 
nity Enterprise Scheme, of 
which he is patron, sponsored 
by The Times and the Royal 
Institute of British Architects, 
and funded by the Caiousie 
Gulbenkian Foundation. 

The fund-raising aim of the 


By Christopher Waiman, Property Correspondent 


trust is to be called Inner City 
Aid, and because the Prince 
cannot be directly involved in 
raising money, a Gektof-type 
figure is being sought to lead 
the campaign. 

Several Band Aid staff are 
already helping, and campaign 
events will probably include a 
Wembley pop concert at- 
tended by the Prince and 
Princess of Wales and their 
children. 

One of the trust's first 
moves will be to ask com- 
merce and industry to provide 
places in companies to train 
community entrepreneurs — 
people with skills in the fields 
of financing and gram aid, 
construction or job creation. 

They will then either go 
back to their own commu- 
nities or act as roving experts 
throughout the country. 

There is no specific funds 
target for the trust, but it is 
thinking in terms of hundred 
of millions of pounds. Mr Rod 
Hackney, the community 
architect and one of the 
Prince's advisers, said yes- 
terday that the aim was to be 
the Band Aid for Britain. 

“It is as big as that because 
we need to be that ambitious. 
Our inner cities are festering 
because they are in a transi- 
tion period between local 
authorities doing most of the 
work and the emphasis on free 
enterprise encouraged by the 
present government." 


Mr Hackney said that inner 
cities were not very attractive 
for private investment, but 
that with a little risk they 
could provide huge returns. 
“The best way of guaranteeing 
that return is to involve ana 
enthuse local residents to care 
for their environment. 

“They must be involved in 
the design of local housing, 
there must be self-building, 
and they must be encouraged 
to maintain and look after 
their environment." 

The trust's task would be to 
provide an injection of capital 
and expertise to act as a 
catalyst for private invest- 
ment. “That will lead to self- 
generating investment, which 
could follow in 18 months to 
two years. The key to success 
is to create long-term employ- 
ment in these areas." 

The trust will also en- 
courage projects which bring 
the public and private sector 
together with the voluntary 
movement and community 
groups, the third force in the 
regeneration of decaying ur- 
ban areas. 

It may also consider push- 
ing for legislation to ease the 
tax laws which prevent big 
companies giving money to 
charity. 

The first year of the 
Community Enterprise 
Scheme highlighted the work 
of voluntary groups and 
community architects in run- 


down inner city areas of 
Britain. 

Of nearly 200 entries the 
Derry Inter City Project, 
Londonderry, won the Charles 
Douglas-Home award for the 
most outstanding scheme. 

. Since 1981. eight derelict 
buildings have been rebuilt 
and work is under way on 
another seven. About 500 
people are employed or in 
training to create facilities for 
young people including craft 
workshops, libraries, and 
tourist attractions. 

Another Community Enter- 
prise Scheme winner was the 
Zenzele Self-Build Housing 
Association plan under which 
unemployed people built 12 
one-bedroomed flats with a 
communal laundry and gar- 
den, for a total cost of 
£144,000 including land and 
professional fees. 

As a result, 11 of the 12 
association members have 
now found foll-time em- 
ployment and four have 
formed their own building 
company. 

In a third scheme, the 
Cal v ay Cooperative at Bar- 
lanark, Glasgow, with funding 
from the Scottish Housing 
Corporation, has been in- 
volved in refurbishing 336 
flats in the four-storey ten- 
ement blocks of the housing 
estate at a cost of about £5 
million.

Guernsey ‘outside 
jurisdiction 
for right to home 9 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


The Government, has made 
a last-minute attempt to avoid 
an embarrassing ruling against 
it today at the European Court 
of Human Rights in Stras- 
bourg in a case brought by a 
Guernsey couple who were 
fined for living in their own 
home. 

Mr Gerald Gillow, aged 70, 
and his wife, Yvonne, are 
claiming that the Guernsey 
housing law is really a “sur- 
rogate immigration law" to 
control the number of people 
coming to live on the island. 

The couple’s claim that 
their rights have been violated 
in respect of property and 
family life have ban upheld 
by the European Commission 
of Human Rights, and the 
court usually endorses its 
findings. 

But in a late submission to 
the court, the Government is 
now contesting one of the 
couple's two main claims on 
the ground that the relevant

The Giilows moved to the

While they were away, 
changes were made in the 
housing laws which brought in 
a new condition of the 
residents' qualifications: a 
person had to be resident in 
Guernsey on July 31, 1968. to 
qualify to live there. 

In 1978 the Giilows wrote to 
the housing authority saying 
they proposed to return, and 
were told they could not do so. 
A licence to occupy the house 
was refused because of the 
“advene housing situation" at 
that time. 

The couple moved back 
into their home and were 
fined and told they could 
reside in Guernsey for 90 days 
only in any year. Their appeals 
were dismissed. 

The Giilows felt obliged to 
sell their bouse in 1980 and 
decided to take their case to 
Strasbourg to seek either 
restoration of residents' rights 
or compensation. 

They maintain that the 
housing few is discriminatory 
in that it does not stop wealthy 
people coming to the island. 

They also claim that the few 
is invalid as Guernsey is 
debarred from legislating on 
immigration and nationality 
matters. 

“We say that Guernsey is 
not independent, is not a 
country, and has no right to 
prevent Britons from going to 
reside there," Mr Gillow says.

Prices of 
prints at 
new record 1 

By Geraldine Norman 
Sale Room 
Correspondent 

Sotheby's five-session print 
sale in New York at the end of 
last week demonstrated that 
the money which is driving 
modem pictures to unheard of 
price levels this autumn is also 
chasing print prices higher. 
Art is enjoying a boom, 
particularly in America. 

In the wake of a multi- 
million record for a Jasper 
Johns painting, a set of his 
lithographs, comprising 10 
numerals from 0 to 9, printed 
in colours in 1968-69 soared 
to $154,000 (estimate $55- 

70.000) or £107,692 the high- 
est price paid in a sale of 
contemporary prints. 

Other artists of the popular 
post-war American generation • 
were also recording high 
prices. Andy Warhol’s 
“Marilyn", a set of 10 
sflkscreens of 1967, secured 
$33,000 (estimate $30-40,000) 
or £23,076, Robert 
Motherwell's “A la pumna" 
portfolio of 1968-72 illustrat- 
ing poems by Rafael Alberti 
brought $31,900 (estimate ; 
$25-30.000) or £22,307 and 
Frank Stella's engraving 
“Estoril Five IT" ofl 982 made i 
$30,800 (estimate $18-22,000). 
or £2 1,538. 

The print sale totalled 
£3,763,038 with only 6 per’ 
cent left unsold. The modem 
“Old Masters", such as Ma- 
tisse and Picasso, were sharing 
the boom. The top prices 
among the earlier prints was 
$101,750 (estimate $75- 

85.000) or £71,104 for a 
Matisse lithographic of 1925, 
a splendid image of a nude 
entitled “Nue au coussin bleu 
a cote d'une cheminee". 

The top priced Picasso 
prints included an impression 
of his famous 1904 etching, 
“Le repas frugal", at $93,500 
(estimate $50-60,000) or 
£65,384 and $79,750 (estimate 
$45-55,000) or £55,769 for his 
garishly coloured linoleum cut 
of 1962, “Buste de Femme au 
Chapeau". Chagall got in on 
the act with his colour litho- 
graphs, “The Ride” of 1970 at 
$35,200 (estimate $18-22,000)> 
or £24,598, selling to a Japa- 
nese dealer. 

Maxwell 
to sue 
Smiths 

By Jonathan Miller 

Media Correspondent 

Mr Robert Maxwell, propri- 
etor of Minor Group News- 
papers, is to press ahead with 
iegd action against W H 
Smith, the country's largest 
newsagents, for distributing 
libellous editions of the maga- 
zine Private Eye. 

The company's chairman, 
Mr Simon Hornby, said at the 
weekend that he rejected Mr 
Maxwell's demand that it 
cease distribution of the 
publication. 

Mr Maxwell's case against 
the newsagents follows his 
High Court victory against 
Private Eye. in which he was 
awarded damages and costs 
for the magazine's suggestions 
that he hid tried to buy a 
peerage by financing trips 
made by MrNeil Kinnock, the 
Labour leader. 

Mr Maxwell said his victory 
means that distributors of 
Private Eye will know the risks 
of continuing to sell the 
magazine, which be said had 
been proven to show a reckless 
j disregard for truth. 


by paper 
dangerous 

By Robin Young 

The Mail on Sunday was 
censured by the Press Council 
yesterday for “a particularly 
unwarranted intrusion" into a 
mental hospital where a dou- 
ble killer was a patient. The 
conduct of the newspaper's 
journalists was described as 
“inexcusable and dangerous". 

Redbridge Health Authority 
complained that journalists 
entered Goodmayes Hospital, 
Essex, by subterfuge. Mr 
David O’Neill, the camera- 
man, had bruised the arm of a 
nurse when leaving in haste, 
and his photograph of Dennis 
Foskett, the double killer, 
gettinga cup of tea in a kitchen 
had been published without 
permission. 

The authority's district gen- 
eral manager complained that 
Mr O'Neill and Mr Richard 
Holliday, the reporter, had 
claimed they were friends of 
FosketL 

Mr Graham Mttiley, former 
managing editor of The Mail 
on Sunday, said that it had 
been in the public interest to 
establish Foskett's where- 
abouts, and important to show 
that he was living in a place 
with a low level of security. 

The Press Council adjudica- 
tion said that there had been 
no need to use subterfuge to 
establish the wherabouts of 
the patient. The health 
authority had already an- 
nounced where he was. The 
photographer had agreed that 
he took pictures of the patient 
because be recognized him 
from a picture the paper 
already held. 

A further complaint was 
upheld against The Mail on 
Sundays magazine section, 
You, for an “irresponsible" 
cartoon which suggested that 
children should splash lighter 
fuel on a barbecue and then 
toss in a lighted match. 

Mr Frank Heather, manag- 
ing editor, admitted that with 
hindsight proper consider- 
ation had not been given to 
the possibility that the cartoon 
could be read seriously. 

In a third adjudication the 
Press Council upheld a com- 
plaint against The Sun by the 
Labour group of Manchester 
City Council. An offer to print 
individual disclaimers from 
members of the group de- 
scribed in an article as Mili- 
tant Tendency supporters was 
an insufficient remedy, the 
council said. 

A further complaint about 
the use of the description 
“loony lefties" was rejected on 
the grounds that the phrase 
was imprecise and clearly 
sufcgective. 

Order won for 
palace bunker 

Mr Dan Dunton, a painter, 
of Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, 
has won an order to decorate 
12 stretched-fabric ceilings for 
King Fabd of Saudi Arabia. 

The ceilings, which have 
ornate borders, are to be used 
in the nuclear bunker . 

Libel writ 

Sir David Rowe-Ham, Lord 
Mayor of London, is suing 
Mail Newspapers for libel 
over a Daily Mail gossip 
column story about his entry

The nation is preparing to 
spend £16 billion in the last

Credit worth more than £1 
billion will be raised, and the 
volume of sales will be a fifth

beginning of the decade. 

Conservative estimates are 
now that the average house- 
hold spends nearly £375 to the 
celebration of Christmas. In 
many houses nearly hal f that

By Rodney Cowton, Transport Correspondent 


The Chelmsford by-pass in 
Essex opens today. It will 
mean that the A1 2 trunk road, 
the main route from London 
to the east coast prats of 
Felixstowe and Harwich, has 
dual carriageway from Wan- 
stead in east London to 
Ipswich. . 

It will also provide a good 
quality road link into the M25 
from the east, giving a route 
into the national motorway 
system. 

The nine-mile Chehnsfrad 
by-pass will be .formally 
opened by Lord Brabazon of

Wheel clamp ‘amnesty

Wheel damping on cars 
parked illegally m central 
London has been suspended 
until nexr Monday when two 
private Bcensed contractors, 
under the direction of police 
officers and traffic wardens, 
take over foe work. 

The privatization is ex- 
pected to release 50 pofice 
officers for other duties, save 
hundreds of thousands of 
pounds, ami make St .possible 
to double the number of wheel 
dampings to 80,000 a year. 

The eventual privatization 


of the physical work of remov- 
ing illegally parked cars is 
expected to increase the num- 
ber of removals fivefold Id 
40,000. 

It is estimated that 350000 
illegal parkings occur in 
London every day. It has been 
costing the police an average 
£54 to remove a vefaide but an 
owner is charged only £45 to 
recover it

Agriculture Correspondent 

The Government is facing 
the dilemma of whether to 
ignore the 2 dvice of its animal 
welfare body, which has con- 
demned foe battery cage sys- 
tem of egg production, or to 
risk a confrontation with EEC 
countries by agreeing to a ban. 

Last week the Farm Animal 
Welfare Council finally con- 
firmed its view that the bat- 
tery cage system is unaccept- 
able in its present form. 

Its report is being widely- 
distributed to retailers, 
distributors, consumer 
organizations, welfare bodies, 
and research establishments, 
and could have serious im- 
plications for an industry with 
sales of nearly £800 million a 
year. 

Each of us eats on average 
nearly 200 eggs a year, of 
which more than 90 per cent 
are produced in battery cages. 
That method of production 
has been one of the principle 
targets of animal rights 
campaigners. 

Bui although only 2 per cent* 
of our eggs are imported, the 
EEC would consider any uni- 
lateral action by Britain to be 
against community regula- 
tions on free trade. 

The council says that, al- 
though the cage system meets 
some of its welfare criteria, the 
confinement restricts the 
birds' behaviour.

HOW BIG DOES IT 

HAVE TO GET BEFORE 




G ay or straight, male or female, 
AIDS can infect anyone. It is in- 
curable and it kills. 

It is the fastest growing killer 
disease in this country. 

At the moment the infection is 


mainly confined to relatively small 
g roups of peopleln this countr y. 

But the virus is spreadin g. 

It is spread between people 
d ur in g sexual intercourse. An in- 
fected man has the . virus in his 
semen. An infected woman in her 
vaginal fluid. 

The problem is, not everyone 
who is infected knows it. So the 
more sexual partners you have, the 
greater the danger. Use a condom. 
It’s safer for both of you. 

People who inject drugs face the 
added danger of infection if they 
share needles or equipment. 

So don’t inject. But if you do, 
never share. 

For more information, phone

From A Correspondent 
Cairo 

President Mubarak of Egypt 
and King Husain of Jordan, 
both supporters of Iraq in its 
war with Iran and close Amer- 
ican allies, warned the United 
States yesterday that its 
credibility in the Arab world 
was being eroded by its secret 
arms deal with Iran. 

Mr Mubarak said at a joint 
press conference in Cairo that 
he was “astonished* but that 
the situation could be rectified 
if Mr Reagan reconsidered his 
policy. King Husain said he 
was concerned about the 
deal's repercussions on the 
Gulf War and thought that the 
Arabs should not be totally de- 
pendent on the US to solve 
their problems. 

"It is very astonishing to 
hear this story," Mr Mubarak 
said, in the first official Egyp- 
tian response to Mr Reagan's 
Iran.arms disclosure. 

“I made some comments in 
a message to Mr Reagan, 
asking, him, and 1 am still 
asking the United States, to do 
[ something so as not to lose its 
credibility in the Arab world." 

Mr Mubarak, whose coun- 
try receives $2 billion in 
financial aid from the US each 
year, seemed milder than King 
Husain. He said: “I hope 
something wiD be done in foe 
near future so foe United 
I States win not lose its credibil- 
ity, which I am afraid has 
started to deteriorate." 

Mr Mubarak's relations 
with the US were strained and 
he feh personally insulted in 
October 1985 when American 
fighters intercepted an Egyp- 
tian plane carrying the four 
Palestinian hijackers of foe 
cruise liner Achille Lauro. 

King Husain two-days ago 
expressed "shock and disap- 
pointment” and said that the 
deal with Iran “gives rise to 
I concern ... I am puzzled 
because I cannot understand 
foe American thinking" He 
rejected Mr Reagan's argu- 
ments that the arms would 
I expedite an end to the war.

ope set to deliver blow to 
ritain in Falklands vote 


From Zoriana Pysariwsky, New York 


•Rain's ability to keep its 
Eupiean partners in line on 
theralklands issue is expected 
lot delivered a further blow 
in/ic United Nations General 
Ajembly meeting which be- 
gs today on the continuing 
dilomauc stalemate in foe 
Jpilh Atlantic. 

Jnless there is a successful 
st-minute British lobbying 
Tort. The Netherlands will 
(in France. Italy and Greece, 
hieh last year broke Euro- 
an ranks to side with foe 
.^entine contention that any 
nglo-Aigentine attempts at 
conciliation must have as 
eir cornerstone negotiations 
ver Falklands sovereignty. 
There are also unconfirmed 
•ports that Belgium, West 
ermany. Portugal and (re- 
nd are considering switching 
om their pattern of absten- 
ons, in a display of European 
ilidarity with Britain, to firm 
icking of foe Argentine pos- 
ion on the grounds that 
lough time has elapsed for 
ritain to discuss sovereignty. 
For the Government of 
resident AJfonsin of Armen- 
ia, the European vote is the 
osi coveted. It has the effect 
‘ enhancing enormously the 
racnline position while com- 
g closer to isolating Mrs 
liatchcr for having sought 
alogue without concedmg 
ie essential ingredients. For 


their part. British officials 
believe that foe Assembly 
debate only encourages Argen- 
tina to defer taking steps to 
return to normal relations. 

Argentina enters the two- 
day debate with foe bonus of 
having had its latest overture 
to Britain dismissed last week 
as a variation of foe demand 
that the sovereignty issue be 
included on any Anglo- Ar- 
gentine agenda. 

Britain's decision last 
month to establish a fisheries 
protection zone around the 
disputed islands is likely to be 
seen by foe majority in foe 
Assembly as an unnecessary 
provocation. 

The current draft resolu- 
tion, sponsored by Latin 
American nations but inspired 
by Argentina, is in essence the 
same as a measure adopted by 
foe Assembly last year. It is 
tailored to win the largest 
possible number of votes by 
omitting the contentious word 
“sovereignty” but at the same 
time, by urging discussion on 
“all aspects” of the islands' 
future, leaving no doubt over 
the intentions of foe draft. 

British diplomats are ex- 
pected again to seize on this 
semantic manoeuvring to try 
to expose Argentina as passing 
off as reasonable a highly 
prejudicial draft resolution. 
The Government's desire to 


see tensions tn foe South 
Atlantic turn into co-opera- 
tion and friendship will be 
emphasized. 

But, as always, Britain is left 
defending a policy which foe 
international community sim- 
ply does not accept The 
Falklands issue is seen as an 
anachronism and negotia- 
tions, whatever foe circum- 
stances, an inviolable prin- 
ciple of foe United Nations. 
Britain can only seek solace in 
foe number of countries 
abstaining. 

The debate finds Britain 
abandoning its relatively low 
profile at foe UN to conduct a 
vigorous campaign which 
leaves nothing to chance. The 
British diplomatic offensive 
rests on three main argu- 
ments: the paramount im- 
portance of the self-determin- 
ation of foe islanders, the fact 
that Argentina initiated the 
1982 conflict and foal foe 
Argentine draft is a straiegeru 
prejudging the outcome of any 
sovereignty negotiations. 

But the calculations this 
year point to Britain’s being 
left with Belize as its only 
outright supporter in the “no" 
column. 

Because it is difficult for any 
country to vote against nego- 
tiations, abstentions are able 
to count as diplomatic vic- 
tories.

‘Supergrass law’ under fire 


The West German Govern- 
ment plan to bring in a 
“supergrass” law for terrorist 
crimes is likely to be scrapped 
after a decision by foe Free 
Democrat Party (FDP), the 
junior partners in the Co- 
alition, to water it down. 

Leaders of the FDP had 
earlier agreed with the two 
conservative parties that ter- 
rorists of the Red Army 
Faction should be offered the 
chance to give evidence 
against their comrades in re- 
turn for freedom or light 
sentences. 

But faced with a mutiny by 
their rank-and- file members, 


From John England, Mainz 
the FDP federal executive 
headed off a public row at a 
preelection conference last 
Friday and Saturday by pro- 
posing a compromise which 
ruled that “supergrasses" 
should not go free. 

The 400 delegates voted 
overwhelmingly for the mo- 
tion after more than four 
hours of lively and sometimes 
passionate debate. 

This was a dear snub to 
Chancellor Kohl’s Christian 
Democrats (CDU), and foe 
Bavarian Christian . Social 
Union (CSU) of Herr Franz 
Josef Strauss, although, the 
same delegates earlier in foe 


day had voted equally over- 
whelmingly to continue foe 
FOP'S four-year-old coalition 
with the conservatives. 

At foe CSlTs pre-poll con- 
ference in Munich, Herr 
Strauss described the FOP'S 
compromise proposal as a 
typically meaningless alibi 
from foe party. 

Herr Kohl, a guest speaker 
at the conference, recom- 
mended dropping foe “super- 
grass" idea from anti-terrorist 
measures which the Govern- 
ment wants to make law by 
Christmas, in line with CDU- 
CSU opinion that it would be 
useless if weakened. 


‘Death to

chant in 
Jerusalem 

From Ian Mmray

Chanting “Death to the 
Arabs”, bmdreds of right- 
wing religions Jews surged 
into the narrow streets of the

yesterday rowing vengeance 
far “the blood of onr lost

All day, in expectation of 
this invasion, the Arab areas 
of the walled city had bees 
deserted save far squads of 
border police on pairoL Shops 
were dosed and their metal 
shatters pulled down. 

In the morning a memorial 
service had been beU on the 
Mount of Olives where the 
“lost brother", Elisha Amedi, 
was buried a week before after 
having died of stall woands 
outside the Yeshiva Bible 
College where he had been 

Three Arab youths were 
anested for questioning abont 
the stabbing, and during the 
last week groaps of extremist 
Jews have been stoning cars, 
smashing windows and setting 
fire to Arab properties in the 
Old City. Every day petrol 
bombs have been thrown 

Yesterday the Cabinet re- 
ceived a report from Mr David 
Kraus, the police Inspector- 
General, who said that many 
of the Yeshiva students were 
known to have carried anas. 

Mr Teddy Kollek, the 
Mayor of Jerusalem, had said 
that the Yeshiva was well 
known for causing trouble. As 
a result, Mr Kollek was the 
target at yesterday's demon- 
stration of as many verbal 
attacks as were the Arabs. 

At the scene of the stabbing, 
now converted into a shrine, 
londspeakers were set np yes- 
terday to boom out foe words 
of psalms and political spe- 
eches. At one stage a few 
Arabs were seen on a rooftop, 
and dozens of demonstrators 
surged forward, pointing np 
and shooting, “Death”. 


Five Soviet 
deserters 
spirited 
to Canada 


From John Best

foe 


Five deserters from 
Soviet Army in Afghanistan 
rested at a Canadian military 
base on foe weekend, having 
been spirited out of Afghani- 
stan and Pakistan in a hush- 
hush, operation co-ordinated 
with leaders of the Mujahidin 
freedom fighters. 

The five had been held 
captive by the freedom fight- 
ers for periods of up to six 
years after their defections. 

The clandestine operation, 
which apparently took place 
last Wednesday or Thursday, 
was the culmination of 
months of careful planning 
According to foe Toronto 
Globe and Mail, foe shadowy 
British external intelligence 
agency MI 6 played a “major 
role” in the expedition. A 
spokesman for the Canadian 
Department of External Af- 
fairs, Mr Raul Fraser, termed 
this report “speculative", but 
did not deny it 
Canadian authorities re- 
fused to give any details of the 
operation but promised a 
briefing for reporters today 
after Mr Joe Clark, the Ex- 
ternal Affairs Minister, re- 
ports to Parliament 
Officials declined to say 
where the former Soviet sol- 
diers are staying, except that it 
is at a military base in Canada. 

On Saturday, just hours 
after news of the smuggling 
operation leaked out foe 
Soviet Embassy in Ottawa was 
informed, but offered no im- 
mediate reaction, beyond say- 
ing that it would report to 
Moscow and- await instruc- 
tions. It was assumed that foe 
Russians will demand an 
opportunity to interview the 
men. The five are still Soviet 
citizens. 

The operation was the fulfil- 
ment of a plan which, in one 
form or another, had been in 
place for more than 2 years.

“/t wasn’t a doddle , it was difficult, but a big 
relief to have done it on my own.” 

Mr Davis is a master of understatement. 
With arthritis in his joints, he didn’t climb the 
26 steps up to his flat just because they were 
there. He had no choice. 

"Of course going down is worse in a way 
because you can see how far there is to fall. But 
at least home is at the top , so the worst is going 
out - not getting back.” 

Over one and a half million old people in 
Britain suffer from arthritis. Besides the pain, 
it takes away their mobility. As everyday 
obstacles - steps, keys, kerbstones - become 
a major challenge, friends, family, shops, the 
community at large, all move slowly out of 
reach.

The sanctions against South

The frontline states have a

Mr EUemann-Jensen said 


the African leaders were well 
aware that such a proposal was 
almost certain to bring down 
the US veto. “We will have to 
see how the debate goes,” he 
added. It was likely that die

down to meet US approval. 

An agreement, within the 
Security Council, is likely to 
contain a ban on air links with 
South Africa and a halt to 
imports of its coal, measures 
that have been specifically 

rejected, so far, by Britain and 

West Germany.

not materialized. The idea of a 
co-ordinated, and simulta-

bans against South Africa, also 
appears to have vapourized.

not waited. In the past two 
weeks both have' withdrawn

Federal Party (PFP), fee par-

Delegates at its annual fed-

abolish a' clause in its mani-

Harsh measures flow

From Mac Margofis, Riode Janeiro 

Fresh from a sweeping dec- Conveniently Inst after th

Government has announced a which nearly every seat i 
series of harsh and controver- congress, mid all 23 gova 
sial economic , measures in- norebips. were at stake, 
tended at mice to cool the President Sarney’sBraziEa 


superheated economy, to pay 
the enormous budget deficit, 
and to protect the poor and 
the working classes. 

The measures are described 
as “adjustments” of the Cru- 
zado Plaid, the wide-ranging 
overhaul of the economy 
which arrested the 250 pcr 
cent inflation rate in February. 

To correct outdated prices 
and control an unprecedented 
spending spree, the so-called 
-Cruzado Two” reform in- 
creased telephone, electricity 
and postal rates between 30 
and 60 per cent. 

For the second time this 
year Brasilia imposed a surtax 
— this time of 60 per cent— on 
petrel and alcohol fueL 

Cfirs will cost 80 per cent 

more; 20 percent will go to the 

maiufacturere and 60 per cent 
to government coffers. There 
will be big increases in the 
price of cigarettes and alcohol- 
ic beverages. 

The Government stands to 
collect 160 billion cruzados 
(dmost £8 billion) by these 
measures, enough to pay its 
ceficit of about £5 billion with 
plenty left over. 

Brasilia also promised to 
put its own bouse in order by 
laying off thousands of gov- 
ernment workers and closing 
15 loss-making state otter- 
prises, such as the national 
mortgage bank and the Brazil- 
ian coffee institute. 

President JosC Sarney has 
also ordered a freeze on new 
government recruitment until 
1988. . , . ' 

Even a society long mured 
to sudden pacotes, or sweeping 
economic packages, has seen 
this latest one as particularly 
severe. Bur many think that 
the measures came none too 
soon. ' . 

In the last nme months real 
wage increases of between 15 
and 34 per cent, plus relatively 
stable prices, have created an 
unprecedented level of con- 
sumer demand. 

Factories cannot keep up 
with demand as shoppers 
exercising their new- found 
purchasing power have, emp- 
tied store shelves. Govern- 
ment price controls dis- 
appeared as merchants tacked 
black-market premiums on 
many goods. - „ . 

Yet “Cruzado Two ares 
not as warmly received as the 
original plan, which sent Pre- 
sident Sarney’s popularity rat- 
ings soaring. • • 

Five thousand public 
lovees who are to be laid off 
demonstrated against the ctos- 
i ng of government companies. 
Petrol station owners com- 


would cut business and send 
them into bankruptcy. 

Critics also pointed to the 
timing of the announcement. 


Conveniently just after the 
November 15 election, in 
which nearly every seat in 
congress, and all 23 gover- 
norships. were at stake. 

President Samey’s Brazilian 
Democratic Movement Party 
and its coalition partner, the 
Liberal Front, won an over- 
whelming victory in the elec- 
tion, talcing most of the Con- 
gress seals and aB but one of 
tiie g o vernorships. 

What is more, the Govern- 
ment has called these . in- 
creases “surtaxes”, and not 
price rises, which means they 
will not be part of the calcula- 
tions of the cost of living 
indexes. 

This adroit book-keeping 
spared Brasilia a blemish on 



Sefior Finaroc aiming tocst 
his economy's ‘retociiy’ 

its inflation-fighting record, 
but cost it one of its leading 
economists, Senor Ed mar 
head of the institute of 
geography and statistics, who 
resigned in protest. 

If the increases were .in- 
cluded, economists say, the 
monthly inflation figure for 
November could be up by 
more than three times, to 
about 7 per cent 
The middle and upper 
classes will feel the worst rate. 
But that was the government's 
calculated risk. “Our premise 
was that those earning the 
lowest salaries should not be 
affected,” Senor Dflson Fun- 
aro, the. Finance Minister, 

In fact, these measures are 
nearly as important for what 
ihey exclude. Pressured by his 
own centre-left party, which 
won most of the coalition’s 
seats, President Sarney vetoed 
proposals by some advisers to 
eliminate the large subsidies 
for m ilk and wheat which 
would have sent prices of 
bread and dairy goods soaring, 
and to tax workers' wages. 

. The real challenge for Bra- 
silia now may be containing 
economic growth without 
causing stagnation.

Funaro saidas the latest meas- 
ures were unveiled. “We only 
want to reduce the velocity of

the bidding by declaring to

Key faces behind new crisis in the Phillipines 


Enrile 


Manila (Reuter. AFPI — Mr 
Juan Ponce Enrile, the Phillip- 
ines Defence Minister, lost his 
job yesterday, but not his role 
as a thorn in the side of Presi- 
dent Aquino. 

Mr Enrile. aged 62. has said 
in the past that he would 
consult “friends” if he were 
dismissed from die Cabinet 
Political observers took this 
remark to mean that if his 
supporters preferred a con- 
frontation with the Gov- 
ernment he would go along. 

He did not attend Salurday- 
night’s emergency Cabinet 
meeting, but later talked with 
President Aquino. It was not 
immediately known where he 
went after leaving the Pres- 
idential Palace. Calls to his 
home were not answered. 

One Asian diplomat who 
has watched Mr Enrile closely 
described the situation as dan- 
gerous. 

Mr Enrile has been asso- 
ciated with the military for 
nearly 20 years, most of which 
were spent as Defence Minis- 
ter under the ousted leader, 
Mr Ferdinand Marcos. 

He is believed to have 
considerable support among 
middle-level officers, mainly 
colonels who graduated in 
1971 and who started a well- 
publicized reform movement 
more than a year ago. 

They flocked to the side of 
Mr Enrile in Camp Aguinaldo. 
the Defence Ministry head- 
quarters, when he defected 
from Mr Marcos. But credit 
for mass military defections 
went to armed forces chief. 
General Fidel Ramos. 

Political observers believe 
that Mr Enrile's strong and 
often savage criticism of Presi- 
dent Aquino's handling of the 
communist insurgency was 
based on the belief that Gen- 
eral Ramos was on his side. 

Mr Enrile's supporters were 
said earlier this month to have 
been hatching a plot to oust 
left-leaning ministers while 
President Aquino was in Ja- 
pan on an official visit 

Until she left for Japan, 
there were indications that 
President Aquino did not trust 
General Ramos fully, and she 
called military commanders 
individually to discuss what 
they would do in case of a 
coup. 

General Ramos later issued 
a statement giving a warning 
against any attempt to topple 
the Government; his presence 
at yesterday's Cabinet meeting 
was seen as his decision to 
back President Aquino. 

As Defence Minister under 
Mr Marcos. Mr Enrile was 
seen as the second most 
powerful man in the country, 
but was gradually eclipsed in 
the late 1970s by Mr Marcos's 
wife. Imdda. 

His career went downhill 
when General Fabian Ver, a 
cousin of Mr Marcos, was 
appointed Chief of Staff of the 
Armed Forces in 1981. 
Observers saw the erosion of 
his powers as a major factor in 
Mr Enrile’s decision to stage 
the mutiny in February with 
General Ver's equally dis- 
gruntled deputy. General Ra-

former chief of police aud of

yesterday that the pull-out, 
amounting to half of the 
Beach battalion, signalled tire 
French Government's de- 
cision to abandon Unifil com- 
pletely before tiie force's 
mandate comes up for renewal 
in January. 

The French contingent is 
considered to be the backbone 


Nations force, and the depar- 
ture of all its troops could 
quickly lead to the force's 
collapse. 

UN officials fear that this 
could in tnm create a vacuum 
in the area, making it easier

The hotel was no different 
The flamboyantly fkmncy in- 
terior decorators (Frances 
Matthews and David Yeliand) 
quickly seduced the befl-bop 
and the only lady residents 
were butch Germans in leather 
trousers. When boneymooners 
Peter and Poopy arrived, the 
decorators took one look at 
public-school product Peter 
and soon had him crawling 
around in sw imming trunks on 
a jewelled leash. 

To begin with this left the 
star, Dirk Bogarde as a 
(heterosexual) writer, with lit- 
tle to do but to complain about 
the noise. Eventually he fell 
for neglected and deceived wife 
Poopy. And when the camera 
closed in on them it became 
dear that another long-stand- 
ing affair, between Bogarde 
and the camera, is not dead. 
The wry, self-deprecating 
smile is still there. The lines 
only add to the interest 

The charming Charlotte 
Attenborough (daughter of 
Richard), who played Poopy, 
totally lacked lines. A 27-year- 
old in real life, she had no 
difficulty in convindng us that 
she was four years younger. 
However, she bore no resem- 
blance to the county gel she 
was supposed to be. In writing 
her dialogue, Mr Bogarde 
seemed sparsely acquainted 
with the landed gentry. On the 
strength, and weakness, of this 
drama, let ns hope that be will 
now turn his fastidious eye on 
to a world that he knows really 
well, to give us a completely 
original screenplay.

T 


he “ooloriaition” con- 
troversy continues un- 
abated. On the opening 
day of the London Film 
Festival, the Directors’ 
Guild of Great Britain held a 
conference at the National Kim 
Theatre. The panel was chaired by 
Barry Norman and included the 
directors Fred Zinnemann. Alan 
Parker and Neil Jordan, together 
with the veteran cinematographer 
Douglas Slocombe. who filmed 
most of the Ealing classes, from 
Dead of Night onwards. 

As a debate it inevitably lacked a 
degree of dynamism, since it was 
entirely one-sided. No one, it 
seems, outside the two American 
firms who have a large financial 
stake in the process, has a good 
word for “colorization” — a com- 
puter process which permits black 
and white films to be coloured for 
re-release on television and video. 

The few people in this country 
who have actually seen the results 
report that the computerized col- 
ours are limited and rather lurid, 
and flatten the image. The colour- 
ing can be very approximate: it is 
said that American viewers were 
startled when Frank Sinatra ap- 
peared in a “colorized” film with 
the famous old blue eyes trans- 
muted to brown. The Costume 
Designers' Guild of America, who 
are among the strongest opponents, 
complain that their members' cre- 
ations are being travestied, when 
scenes subtly worked out in shades 
of grey emerge in gay purples and 
greens. 

Aesthetically the process is at 
best equivalent to the efforts of 
those unscrupulous dealers who 
colour old engravings that were 
intended to be black and white. 
The anti-colourists prefer more 
extreme analogies, like that of 
painting Rodin sculptures in 
“natural” colours. Even when the 
process improves, as it inevitably 
will, the objections must remain. 
Cinematography is a very exact 
craft, and a black and white fihn is 
lit in an altogether different way 
from a film that is shot in colour. 


The film-makers who hate 

to have their 
lilies gilded 

The public may prefer their movies 
coloured, but directors who worked 
in black and white are fighting back 
against die distortion of their 
original images: David Robinson 
reports on the battle between the 
creative artist and the entrepreneur 



Gary Cooper in Hfc 
of the threatened films of] 
Zmnemaan, who is rigorously 
leading the fight 

Pk tonally the subsequent addition 
of synthetic colour can only dimin- 
ish the visual style. 

Nor is it a valid argument that 
directors might have preferred to 
make their films in colour, had 
technical or economic circum- 
stances permitted. Although Wil- 
liam Wyler originally wanted to 
shoot Jezebel in colour, when 
finally obliged to make the film in 
Mack and white he and his camera- 
man conceived it for that medium 
and shot it with the best means of 
their craft. To “colorize” the result 
at this stage, far from fulfilling the 
author's wishes, travesties his 
efforts. 

Even if the results were aestheti- 
cally satisfactory, the argument 
continues, it would still be morally 
unacceptable to distort and destroy 
the results that the original direc- 
tors and photographers intended, 
at least without their consent The 



debate has sharply focused the 
issue of the rights of the author in 
motion pictures — which by and 
large are nonexistent The aged 
Frank Capra has protested unavail- 
in gly at the “colorization’' of It’s a 
wonderful Life \ one of the first 
majorfilms to be abused. Currently 
John Huston is bringing an action 
to prevent the “colouration" of 
The Maltese Falcon, which will be 
a test eas e of major significance in 
the matter of author's rights. 

Unfortunately morality as a rule 
has little chance of making head- 
way against money, and the finan- 
cial stakes are huge. The public at 
large goes for gaudiness and prefers 
pictures in colour. One of the first 
“colorized” films to be transmitted 
on American television, the 1947 
fantasy Miracle on Main Street, 
proved a big hhin the ratings. An 
executive asked proudly: “Where 
could you have seen Miracle in 
prime time in black and white? As 


Vi 


a marketing man, colorization is a 
marketing reason, not a fine ait 
reason.” On the video market, 
colour fi lms ran sell ten tunes 
better than Mack and white. 

rigorously leading the 
rattle against “color- 
ization” has been Fred 
Zinngirmiw, whose own 
classic works like High 
Noon and From Here to Eternity 
are under threat. His initial fears of 
appearing to be a solitary, aged 
reactionary and kflljoy have 
proved unfounded. It seems that 
every creative artist in the business 
— even directors like Parker and 
Jordan who have never had the 
opportunity to work in Made and 
white — is now in total support 

Even so, it is hard to see how 
they can bear what looks like 
growing into a bfllioo-doliar in- 
dustry. Legislation is a distant and 
uncertain prospect, though in this 


Humphrey Bogart in The 
Maltese Falcon, whose director, 
John Huston, is currently 
bringing a legal action to save it 

country a White Paper presented 
by the Department of Trade and 
Industry held out feint hope. 
Proposing legislation on Intellec- 
tual Property and Innovation, it 
advocated giving authors and their 
assignees and heirs the right of 
objection to distortion, for the 
entire duration of their copyright 

It would be Utopian to think that 
the public could be trained to 
discriminate between real and 
added colour, or to care. The 
danger is that new generations will 
grow up innocently believing that 
Stagecoach and Citizen Kane and 
The Third Man were always 
variegated. 

The attitude of the television 
companies will be crucial Despite 
the powerful opposition lobby, 
television companies in the United 
States seem so far happy to accept 
“colorized” films. In this country 
Jeremy Isaacs has led the indepen- 


dent companies with a si ate merit 
that Channel 4 will never screen 
films in anv but their original form. 
The BBC’s attitude seems more 
ambivalent, apparently favouring a 
scheme of compiling a list of films 
which should be protected and 
which the Corporation would not 
transmit in “colorized” form. 

A listing system of this kind is 
dubious, however, since aesthetic 
values tend to change with lime: 25 
years ago few people would h3ve 
anticipated that Casablanca and 
Laurel and Hardy would one day 
be revered as classics. Moreover 
the listing idea puts the BBC into 
an odd corner if it suggests that 
they might recognize a category of 
film considered loo trashy to 
protect, but not too trashy io show. 

There seems little prospect of 
stopping the “colorizers” dead in 
their tracks, given their huge 
investment and still larger pros- 
pects of profit Perhaps, then, the 
first-stage strategy of ihe opposi- 
tion should be to use moral 
pressure, and the (rather stronger) 
argument of the television purvey- 
ors who reject “colorization", to 
secure a pledge from the firms 
involved that every llim (hat 
undergoes the process must remain 
freely available in its original black 
and white form. Without such a 
commitment, there is a grave 
danger that the original versions 
will disappear for ever. A number 
of black and white classics have 
already mysteriously vanished 
from the video catalogues. 

One of the “colorization” firms 
is a subsidiary of the Ha! Roach 
Studios, and the 94-year-old Roach 
regards with apparent equanimity 
the prospect of his Laurel and 
Hardy films blooming into colour. 
A couple of weeks ago however this 
formidable nonagenarian, lectur- 
ing at the National Him Theatre, 
delivered the last, caustic word on 
“coloriration”: “Every day”, he 
said, “there are comics in the 
American papers. Six days a week, 
they’re black and while. Sundays 
they're in colour . . . but they 
aren't one bit funnier that way .” 


Character all on the surface 


Having established his creden- 
tials in music of his native 
Russian heritage on previous 
occasions. Mariss Yansons 
ventured into the universal 
Beethoven for his Saturday 
night concert with the Phil- 
harmonia Orchestra, conduct- 
ing in succession the Eighth 
and Ninth Symphonies. The 
earlier of the two was soon 
despatched, with exuberance 
and a certain swagger, and 
before the second was half 
over it was clear that character 
was confined to surface 
effects. 

The urgency and sense of 
pace with which the Leningrad 
visitor redeemed Rachman- 
inov from sentimental excess. 


DANCE 


Sleeping Beauty 

Covent Garden 

The most enthusiastic burst of 
applause during Friday's per- 
formance of The Sleeping 
Beauty was for Anthony 
Dowell as Carabosse, the 
wicked fairy, disappearing 
through a trap-door after 
putting Aurora into her 100 
years' sleep and leading her 
would-be avengers a fine old 
dance through the crowds. 
Since his debut in the role last 
season Dowell has worked up 
the character to a pinnacle of 
sexless malevolence. 

I only wish the other players 
all had his concentration and 
attention to detail, although 
one could hardly hope for 
everyone to match his skill 
and flair. Too many of the 
performers seemed to be going 
through set motions instead of 
making their roles live. Ra- 
venna Tasker’s Aurora is 
thoughtfully presented but 
still at the stage of concentrat- 


ing on steps more than charac- 
ter. Watching her so soon after 
seeing Gelsey Kirkland’s in- 
terpretation of tiie same part, I 
was conscious that Tucker was 
dancing solos where Kirkland 
danced a story. Tucker has 
shown herself before now able 
to learn from others, so we can 
hope for development Mean- 
while, she is best when sim- 
plest cramming too many 
difficult steps into the coda of 
the wedding duet left her 
looking flumed. 

She and Jonathan Cope 
brought some ardour to their 
duets, but she deserves suitors 
of more courtliness for the 
Rose Adagio: only Antony 
Dowson among the four 
princes showed any sense of 
gra vitas. Several aspiring 
young dancers were featured 
in small roles. Deborah Bull 
and Viviana Duranti showed 
poise in their prologue solos: 
Julie Bowers and Peter 
Abegglen brought zest in the 
Red Riding Hood duet but 
only Maria Almeida among 
the Floreslan trio lived up to 
its demands.

same orchestra last week, now 
became the means to driving 
Beethoven hard and reck- 
lessly. Rhythms were rigid and 
stiff-backed, with no ebb and 
flow of phrase or expressive 
feeling, and with the orches- 
tral sound often acquiring a 
raucous edge, not least from 
its doubled woodwind 
strength. 

With the horns seated cen- 
trally at the back, and the 
cellos enclosed between vi- 
olins and violas, the balance of 
timbre was often considerably 
changed, some strands becom- 
ing unexpectedly prominent 


The University of London’s 
1 50th year was celebrated here 
with a refreshing parade of the 
herc-and-now, rather than a 
veneration of ancient glories. 
Every note in this concert was 
penned in the last decade, and 
all by composers commis- 
sioned at some time by the 
music department of Gold- 
smiths College. The one new 
work was, fittingly, by the 
departmental bras, Stanley 
Glassen a droll effort for two 
cellos and piano called From 
Out of My BL Mini , appar- 
ently inspired by car journeys 
to university meetings. 

Judging from the first 
movement's gusty repartee, 
Glasser is not averse to 
crunching the gears a bit, but 
the music's general pur- 
posefulness suggested his stee- 
ring is reasonable, and when 
he hit top speed in the third 
movement (if the concept of

enough was made of the 
variations of tempo which 
help to give the Adagio its 
reflective wonder, and the 
spirit of universal rejoicing 
summoned by the choral fi- 
nale was virtually denied by 
its angry vehemence. 

Indeed, I bad the im- 
pression that the Philhar- 
monia Chorus were being 
forced to anticipate Stravin- 
sky a century later by singing 
words for their syllabic value 
rather than their sense, while 
the solo quartet of Elizabeth 
Harwood, Penelope Walker, 
Ian Caley and David Wilson- 
Johnson sounded less than 
secure. This corona of words 
designed to make articulate 
the music's spiritual in-

They had opened with At the

Not much for our comfort 


On a couple of public appear- 
ances last week Michael 
Green, the new Controller of 
Radio 4, expressed surprise at 
the continuing image of the 
network. That stereotype, he 
thought, is a good five years 
out of date. I rather agree, 
though the reasons for it do 
linger in the sometimes win- 
some tones of its presentation; 
in the amount of its output 
devoted to giving us good 
advice and investigating 
smouldering social issues. 
There was nothing cosy, how. 
ever, about the short series 
which ended last night, A 
Look Inside. 

Leslie Fail-weather’s three 
programmes have been exam- 
ining the past, present and 
future of the prisons, with 
particular reference to Pen- 
ionville. This in its day was a 
Victorian model prison - a 
vast improvement on the 
more or less unregulated squa- 
lor that went before. With new 
building, however, went a 
philosophy which held that 
prison life should be as bad 
and as humiliating as possible 
- although this needs to be 
seen in the context of the 
society in which new prison 
conditions were a great deal 
belter than much housing. 
How (hen to make prisons a 
deterrent? 

For the second programme 
Mr Fairweather took us into 
presem-day Pentonville. still 
all too obviously a Victorian 
design and for that reason 


RADIO 


hopelessly ill-adapted to mod- 
em conditions. Physical app- 
earances apart, however, it is 
doubtful whether our fore- 
bears would recognize the 
place as a prison at alL 
Nevertheless they and we 
have one fundamental thing 
in common: we do not know 
how to turn crooks into law- 
abiding citizens. None of the 
prisoners we heard thought be 
would change his ways. 

Very little for our comfort 
here then on Radio 4. And no 
easy reassurances either in this 
year's Reifo Lectures (Radio 
4, Wednesdays, repeating Ra- 
dio 3, Sundays), even if I find 
myself more actively enjoying 
them than on most past 
occasions. Lord McCluskey, 
former Solicitor-General for 
Scotland and a Judge of the 
Scottish High Court, is giving 
an account of the processes by 
which judges judge: how they 
make and remake law, and 
how it is that good law to a 
judge may be bad law to 
society at large. 

Where is the enjoyment in 
all this? Well, it springs in part 
from his Lordship's delivery, 
which combines elegance of 
expression with a certain very 
Scottish humour — deadpan 
but not quite. And there is also 
a kind of enjoyment in an 
account of our efforts to do 
justice which makes them so 


recognizable as essentially and 
typically human. 

I could point to a dozen 
other recent programmes 
which by no means conform 
to the Radio 4 “hearth and 
home" stereotype, but a 
couple will have to suffice. 
Christopher Fry's was marked 
by an uncommonly attractive 
and. robust With Great Plea- 
sure (November 15) and an 
equally uncommon and att- 
ractive new play. One Thing 
at a Tinie, Or Caedmon 
Constrnde (November 16) 
told how the 7tb-century poet 
found his voice. It was fluent, 
evocative of the once great 
Abbey of Whitby on its cliff- 
top, yet sparer than the Fry 
who once beguiled us, ana 
maybe the better for that. 

Mind you, absence of re- 
assurance can take other 
forms. We have recently heard 
from the last of the five Radio 
Times comedy-writing com- 
petition winners. The four I 
listened to, with one exception 
(Ewart Hutton's Brian the 
Wise), depressed me very 
much indeed and I felt I ought 
to write a letter of condolence 
to the judges. No condolences 
however are required to mark 
the passing of Hoax, which 
mercifully tottered to a dose 
last Friday. A pale imitation of 
Call My Bluff — celebrities tdl 
jolly anecdotes, one of which 
will prove to be a fib — it 
started terminally ill and 
never rallied.

A challenge wholly unmet, 
for his part, fey the composer, 
who also wrote foe libretto and 
directed. The five brief scenes 
scarcely amount to caricature, 
much less characterization. 
Nor is there character to be 
fomd m foe score, sickly sweet 
and redolent throughout of 
Falla, Bizet, Romberg and 
every piece that ever used 
castanets. And of coarse Puc- 
cini. Bat it is dubious tribute 
indeed that stands the old 
master on his head. Whereas 
Puccini was able to portray 
fictional painters in such a way 
as to make as care deeply 
abort them, his disciple has 
managed to reduce an actual 
painter we care deeply about to 
a nullity. 

Similarly, the other charac- 
ters are mere props. The 
hysteria that greets the death 
by poisoning of Goya’s par- 
amour, the Duchess of Alba, 
who has done little to elicit our 
sympathy, seems utterly ludi- 
crous. But the Duchess re- 
turns, madonna-tike, in a 
concluding apparition that re- 
veals the point of foe enter- 
prise; what we really hear, as 
the empty shell of an artist 
voices his final apologia, is the 
composer-librettist’s seffjus- 
tification: “O Ait, O beau- 
ty . . . My only truth, my only 
love. Pity foe artist’s human- 
ity, and lead him to God’s 
perfection.” No need for cour- 
age or imagination, then, 
where “beauty” is concerned, 
and if “beauty” is what foe 
audience wants (as, dearly. 


this enthusiastic one did), so 
much foe better. 

Menottfs long, assertively 
tonal and endlessly doying 
melodies, swathed in swooning 
string harmonies that sound 
hopelessly old-hat even by 
HoHywoodish standards, foil 
to display the voices in any 
i n tere s ting way. Indeed, ex- 
cept in the occasional sten- 
torian tone, Domingo sounded 
almost ordinary, and thus a 
good vocal match for Victoria 
Vergara as the Duchess. The 
performance, conducted by 


Rafael Fruhbeck de Burgos, 
seemed wefl prepared for a 
premiere, notwithstanding re- 
ports that the orchestration 
had been finished just a 
fortnight before. 

The staging reaches its 
nadir in the final scene when, 
before foe Duchess's re- 
appearance. sundry visions 
and demons come to torment 
foe blind and deaf oid painter 
in tawdry dances.

# As our illustration 
shows, the Common 
Agricultural Policy has 
g one haywire. It now 
costs more to store 
butter and grain than 
the goods are worth 

# Introducing the first 
of a five-pait series, 
George Hill explains 
what went wrong 


B ack in Europe’s days 
of innocence, two 
centuries before there 
was a Common Agri- 
cultural Policy, Jona- 
than Swift said that if 
any man cotdd make two ears of 
corn grow on a spot of ground 
where only one grew before, he 
would deserve better of mankind 
than the whole race of politicians 
put together. 

The miraculous doubting of 
form productivity Swift imagined 
has become a commonplace of 
European agriculture — Britain's 
cereal production per acre exactly 
doubled, between 1975 and 1985, 
and comparable advances have 
been achieved with other crops. 
But he would not be surprised in 
the least to find that the politicians 
have contrived to turn that benefit 
into a monster which threatens to 
engulf Europe in disputes and to 
disrupt the agriculture of the 
whole world. 

The CAP is an absolutely 
intolerable policy, and at the same 
time an absolutely indispensable 
one. Everyone involved with it 
knows that it cannot be allowed to 
go on as it is. yet it seems 
impossible to reform it without 
causing untold political, soda! and 
environmental disturbance 
throughout (he Community. It is 
Europe’s sacred cow, an un- 
controllable cornucopia which 
threatens to overwhelm those who 
conjured it up with an unmanage- 
able largesse of com and beef, 
butter, olives and wine. 

When we buy these foods in the 
shops, we pay prices calculated lo 
spur farmers on to produce still 
more. If production under the 
CAP continues to rise at present 
rates, stimulated by a subsidy 
regime which guarantees a good 
price for harvests of any size 
regardless of demand, it is pre- 
dicted that the unwanted surplus 
of cereal alone will treble by 1991, 
to a level equivalent to a quarter of 
a tonne of grain for every man, 
woman and child in the EEC. 

Britain's gross contribution to 
operating this policy already 
amounts to six times as much as 
we spend on maintaining the 
fortress Falklands, and half as 
much again as the Government 
pays out in unemployment bene- 
fit. This year the programme 
which has given Europe its new 
geography of edible mountains 
and lakes is expected to overrun 
its budget of about £ 1 2 billion by a 
billion pounds, largely because of 
ihe cost of storing the rising stocks 
of surplus food - a cost which now 
accounts for not far short of half of 
the cost of the entire CAP. 
According to the Euro-MP Peter 
price the cost over-run will be 
more like £2 billion than £1 
billion, and the annual cost of 
storing the unwanted stocks is not 
for short of their actual value on a 
glutted market Some of Europe's 
newest millionaires have founded 
their fortunes on providing stor- 
age. and some of Europe's best 
minds have been bent to the task 
of getting rid of as much as 
possible with the minimum of cost 
and publicity. They have devised 
projects worthy of Swift’s Hying 
Island, including one to dispose oT 
surplus butter by recycling u back 
into feed for cattle (which do not 
care for it) — fattening them up to 
contribute to the beef and butter 
surpluses of tomorrow. 

Much of the surplus is exported 
at giveaway prices, undercutting 
the efforts of producers elsewhere 
— who face steeo tariff barriers 


against selling in the EEC on their 
own account —and making mock- 
ery of the attempts of developing 
countries to achieve selfsuf- 
ficiency. In the long run, this 
process, partly pursued under the 
rubric of aid, may tend actually to 
increase poorer countries’ 
vulnerability to famine. 

Attempts have been made in the 
last two years to bring the policy 
under some kind of control, but 
they have not succeeded even in 
halting the growth of the lakes and 
mountains, let alone in making 
inroads into their bulk. Mean- 
while, the cost of buying every 
pint of milk and bushel of com the 
farmers can produce falls heavily 
on Europe's consumers. A House 
of Lords report six years ago 
estimated that the CAP was then 
adding 10 per cent to food prices 
in this country. 


‘Farmers have begun 
to forget that 
fanning is an 
insecure business’ 


A lthough Britain, 
which has long been 
pressing the need for 
drastic reforms, is 
now near the end of a 
six months’ tenure of 
the presidency of the EEC Agri- 
cultural Council we have little to 
show for this opportunity. The 
bureaucrats of the European 
Commission in Brussels and the 
members of the European Par- 
liament in Strasbourg are also 
committed to reform. But na- 
tional self-interest embodied in 
the Council of Ministers, creates 
an almost insurmountable politi- 
cal inertia. 

It is not as if the farmers 
themselves are happy. All over 
Europe they are complaining as 
bitterly as ever, blaming the 
Community bureaucrats for the 
insecurities of their lot which in 
the past would have had to be pot 
down to impersonal factors like 
weather and scarcity. Every 
manipulation of the price support 
structure to mitigate the worst 
distortions of oversupply has the 
impact of a kind of artificial 
famine on the farmers who lose 
out There is lively competition 
between the politicians of member 
nations to mould the rules to 
favour their countries’ interests. 
But in most parts of Europe the 
historic flight from the land is 
continuing at greater or lesser 
speed, and painful adjustments 
are having to be made. 

British farmers have suffered 
more than most, in the years since 
the boom of the 1970s. Their 
average incomes dropped 43 per 
cent in 1 9S5. and debts incurred in 
more confident times weigh 
heavily today, though bank- 
ruptcies are rare as yeL In addi- 
tion, they have an uneasy 
awareness that the CAP was not 
designed with their interests in 
mind. In the banking community, 
a fall of as much as 30 per cent in 
the number of full-time British 


fanners is expected over the next 
10 years. A few have actually left 
Britain to farm in France, where 
the industry has more electoral 
clout than it does here, and fights 
for its interests mare ruthlessly. 

Hie truth is that Europe’s 
farmers have begun to forget that 
fanning is inherently an insecure 
business, subject to harsh fluctua- 
tions according to weather and 
demand. For all its mounting 
shortcomings, the CAP has 
achieved its fundamental purpose 
and brought at least a relative 
stability, economic and social to 
the community’s rural areas. It is 
.doing this by a process which lays 
an increasing economic burden on 
the Community as a whole, and by 
exporting instabilities to other 
parts of the world. Bui the policy 
remains an indispensable pillar of 
the post-war European settlement 
The ferocity with which its propo- 
nents repel any questioning of its 
Holy Writ partly reflects the 
emotional charge that the Euro- 
■ pean ideal still carries. 

And in the last resort, a rising 
capacity to produce food cannot 
really be a bad thing in an 
increasingly crowded world- Mi- 
chael Jopluig, Secretary of State 
for Agriculture, is quite right when 
he insists that the problems of the 
CAP are the problems of success. 

But the debate is so im- 
passioned that it threatens to 
become an obsession — one which, 
as Giovanni Agnelli the president 
of Fiat, wamea this month, tends 
to distract Europe's attention from 
the industrial and economic 
development that the EEC exists 
to promote. If any internal factor 


Part 1: Reaping the 
harvest of cowardice 


could threaten the cohesion of the 
O mni uni ty, it is the reform of the 
CAP. r ^ 

All this would have a profound 
irony for the original architects of 
the Treaty of Rome. The very 
purpose of the CAP was to defuse 
agriculture as Ihe divisive factor 
that they foresaw it might be. It 
made an incongruous enclave 
within the EEC ideal In a struc- 
ture founded on the ideals of 
world free trade and open mar- 
kets, the CAP enshrined protec- 
tion. price control and open-ended 
subsidy. The irony is that for 
much of the world, the EEC today 
stands represented by its agri- 
cultural rather than its industrial 
policy — and therefore risks 
provoking in retaliation tariff 
barriers restricting free trade in 
industrial and agricultural exports 
alike. The tail threatens to wag the 
dog. 


The agricultural policy, was a 
•central dement in the trade-off of 
interests between Germany and 
France which determined the 
form of the Treaty of Rome in 
1957. Germany wanted free out- 
lets for its industrial production, 
as well as international 
respectability after the war; France 
wanted trading opportunities for 
its colonies and its relatively 
numerous peasant farmers. 

The founders of the Market 
sought to mould European institu- 
tions into a form which would 
make it impossible for war to 
break out again as it had done 
twice in the century, and to fill a 
political vacuum threatened by 
Russian expansion. Their sense of 
urgency impelled them to start 
getting the framework into place 
as soon as possible. The CAP, 
growing stage by stage between 
1957 and 1970, was a talisman of 
unity: under any other conditions, 
it would have grown more slowly, 
and in less uncompromising 
forms. 

The war had ravaged Europe's 
fanning, and the Depression had 
shown earlier how vulnerable 
fanning could be when its cus- 
tomers were forced to tighten their 
belts. Crushing fluctuations in 
world prices were the norm. The 
EEC set out towards a regime 
which would protect farmers from 
being undercut by ‘cheaper im- 
ports from outside when world 
prices were low. and encourage 
them to step up production and 
invest in higher efficiency by 
o Bering them uniform Commu- 
nity-wide guaranteed prices, to be 
met by import levies and the 
wealth created by German in- 
dustry as it expanded to serve an 
open market of 200 million. 

But security and incentives to 
efficiency accomplished miracles. 
As early as 1958, Dr Sicco 
Mansholt, the architect of the 
CAP, was warning of the risk that 


THE AMBITION: EUROPE MUST NEVER STARVE AGAIN 


In an age when very few Europe- 
ans go hungry it is easy to forget 
the problems that prevailed 29 
years ago, when the Treaty of 
Rome was signed and the Com- 
mon Agricultural Poficy was 
formed. 

Between 1939 and 1945, thanks 
to tike combined efforts of the 
Atlantic convoys and the Land 
Army, plus a great deal of 
research and advice on nutrition, 
i Wwin managed to feed itself. In 
the rest of Europe, however, 
millions went without food muter 
Nazi occupation and by the time 
they were defeated the Gomans 
themselves were starving- In the 
ravaged postwar years the leaden 
of Europe vowed_ that it should 

never happen again. 

It was largely because of this 
obsession with self-sufficiency 
that a common market m agri- 
culture became the dominant 
objective of the Treaty of Rome. 
The other important motive was 
the fact that in 1958, when the 
Treaty was signed, almost 16 
million people in the ax signatory 
states — France, West Germany, 
Italy, the Netherlands, Belgian 
and Luxembourg — were still 
employed in agriculture; nearly a 
quarter of the working popula- 
tion, compared with 4 per cent m 


High hopes: sign ing the Treaty of Rome in March, 1957 


Britain. The Treaty aimed to 
bring their living standards up to 
those enjoyed .by industrial 
workers. 

A third element was a kind of 
political bargain between France 
and Germany. The French needed 
a market for their farm produce, 
w hil e the Gennaim, deprived of 
pre-war customers, needed new 
la yers for their industries. 

The principle was that there 
should be free trade between 


member states, with a common 
external tariff to protect produc- 
ers from outside competition. Hie 
founding fathers failed to foresee 
that dramatic increases in 
productivity would turn Western 
Europe into one of the most 
prolific food-producing regions in 
the world. Support prices which 
would ensure a modest living for a 
peasant family became a bonanza 
for those farming the fertile 
plains of northern Europe. 


the policy might subsidize 
wanted surpluses. Ten years later, 
even before the pooling of farm 
financing into a common system 
was complete, he produced a plan 
to avert the threat by freezing food 
prices. But the CAP was by then 
inexorably on course: it has not 
si gnifi cantly changed course since. 
A sort of inverted Micawberism 
has come to reign in the Commu- 
nity: “Annual increase in agri- 
cultural production 2 per cent - 
annual increase in consumption 
0.5 per cent — result Misery!”. 

if Dr Mansholt could not divert 
the CAP from its course. Britain 
certainly was not going to be able 
to. The governments negotiating 
and renegotiating British entry in 
the Sixties and Seventies accepted 
it in effect as the price of entry, 
although it marked a painful 
breach with our traditional poli- 
cies of buying on the world market 
(there was usually a buyers’ mar- 
ket somewhere), and subsidizing 
our farmers directly, rather than 
through price guarantees. It was a 
policy which meant cheap food, 
with the burden of subsidy falling 
on tbe taxpayer, and no built-in 
incentive to oversupply. 

Community regulations, de- 
signed to ease Europe’s small 
peasant farms painlessly towards 
greater efficiency, tend to . be 
unhelpful to British farms, most of 
which, are already relatively large 
and highly mechanized. Britain 
contributes more to the CAP fond 
than it receives, and this country 
has a vested interest in CAP 
reform — but when Mrs Thatcher 
mounted her frontal assault on 
EEC funding, she concentrated on 
our share of the budget, leaving 
limited resources of goodwill be- 
hind for farm policy reform. 

Meanwhile the Community has 
grown, and the accession of mil- 
lions more relatively poor fanners 
needing support, Greek, Spanish 
and Portuguese, has turned even 
France into a net contributor to 
the fond, and hastened the day 
when an unreformed system 
would bankrupt tbe Community. 
Bui the farm lobby remains strong 
in France, and has become strong 
in Germany. Their farm ministers 
are today among the most in- 
flexible ofall opponents of change. 

Change would not be simple to 
bring about even apart from the 
lobbyists. .Ml fanners claim that 
they .louer along not far from 
bankruptcy, and some really do. 
Simply rewarding efficiency 
would penalize those who operate 
on the hills or in harsh climates, 
where a failure of agriculture 
would shatter social patterns. 
Phasing would be essential, to 
allow farmers to adapt But that 
creates its own problems: a farmer 
growing com can gp into beef if 
the Community decides to pay 
farmers less for corn. Cheaper 
corn for feed makes beef more 
profitable, everyone sees the 
opportunity, and in no time action 
to stem one surplus has boosted 
another. 

If price cuts are politically 
unthinkable, time and a price 
freeze must do the same job. 
Restricting output is a possibility, 
though a great generator of red 
tape. Production quotas were 
introduced as a desperate measure 
in dairy farming two years ago. 
They are unpopular and a dis- 
incentive to improving efficiency. 
As a last resort, fanners might be 
paid for r.ot farming a certain 
percentage of their land — a “set- 
aside ‘ policy”, as it is caHcd — 
perhaps on condition that they 
took care, to prevent it declining 
into unkempt wilderness. 


The principle of open-ended 
price guarantees rs ore of the 
pillars of the C AP. but any serious 
attack on the problem ■* likely to 
involve a tapering down of sub- 
sidy cn marginal oroduction of 
surplus products. Where a surplus 
builds up. the oruducors should 
meet a*. least a share of the cost of 
dispo-.ing of -L- Today’s produce 
mountains are only a symptom ot 
the problem of over-production, 
and there is no hope of eliminating 
them - a costly onee-for-all 
process — until the underlying 
problem has been solved. 

Car. the world have too much 
food, anyway? Why not send the 
surplus to Ethiopia, with Europe’s 
blessing? Much has been soil 
with sighs of relief from the 
bureaucrats. Bui except in outright 
famine conditions, food aid can 
do more harm than good. as» it 
disrupt the markets of local 
farmers. 


‘The major capitalist 
economic powers 
wouid like to be 
virtuous - but not vet’ 


| he “green revolution” 
has enabled more and 
more parts of the 
world to become self- 
sufficient in staple 
foods, and floods of 
dumped EEC produce only 
threaten the newly-attained ef- 
ficiency of farming in countries 
like India and Zimbabwe, as well 
as the prosperity of established 
open-market producer like New 
Zealand. The sad story of 
Thailand's short-lived tapioca 
boom illustrates bow price-fixing 
in Brussels can create a gimcrack 
artificial prosperity in a country 
on the other side of the world, and 
suddenly cancel it again. 

It is an unattractive use of 
economic power. The resentment 
of other world producers was 
manifest at the conference on the 
problem in Uruguay last month. 
The new L’nited Stales Congress 
promises lo take a more truculent 
line against Europe's protec- 
tionism. In fact, however, the US 
is at least as great an offender, with 
farm subsidies this year of $35 
billion, compared with the CAP’s 
S23 billion. American farmers are 
admittedly in worse trouble than 
European ones, illustrating that 
even the most lavish subsidy 
regime cannot entirety insulate its 
recipients from market forces. 
Japan likewise pays large subsidies 
lo its rice-growers. Japan, the USA 
and the EEC all over-produce, and 
all unload cheap produce abroad 
to the dismay of local producers. 

Socialist countries, convenient 
recipients of western surpluses, 
spare themselves a problem by 
keeping their ideology pure and 
their farms inefficient But the 
truth . is that • major capitalist 
economic powers ail find it diffi- 
cult to distribute a share of the 
rewards of industrial prosperity to 
their farmers. In attempting to do 
so.’ they create world-wide market 
distortions which every domestic 
pressure serves to reinforce. They 
know _ that the ultimate answer 
must lie in smaller subsidies, and a 
balance cf domestic production 
wiih demand. They would like to 
be virtuous, but not yet The rest 
pi .the world .will not easily forgive 
its wealthiest powers if thev 
continue, for selfish reasons, to 
jeopardize the struggles of less 
fortunate countries to break 
through to a comparable eco- 
nomic security.

SPECTRUM 



food monster grew out of 




HwylCfln- 


went 

unheard 

• Dr Sicco Mansholt, one 
of the founding fathers of the 
EEC was among the first 
to point out that unless some 
of Europe’s farmland was 
taken out of production 
there would be too much 
food. No one listened then; 
they are listening now_ 

T here was a headline- 
many years ago in a 
West German news- 
paper that has stock in 
the mind of Dr Sicco 
Mansholt. a tall, 
imposing man of 78, whose per- 
sonal vision of a common policy 
on agriculture in Europe laid the 
foundations for the birth of the 
CAP. 

“The headline read : This man 
should be killed'. They were 
referring to me," says Mansholt, 
in a voice still tinged with 
disbelief. 

His crime was to suggest that the 
Community's farming population 
should be reduced from over 10 
million to five million. Several 
years before, he bad also said that 
5 per cent of marginal (poor) 
farmland should be taken out of 
production because he could see, 
even then, that there was too 
much land around to produce the 
required amount of food . 

He caused an uproar. Franz 
Josef Strauss, the ebullient West 
German politician, said Mansholt 
was crazy. “Everyone knew I was 
right but it wasn't politically 
acceptable. Strauss was just in- 
terested in maintaining all the 
small forms in Germany and they 
are still there today,* 1 says Dr 
Mansholt with a wry smile. 

This former Dutch- Agricultural 
Minister, who went on to become 
EEC Agricultural Commissioner 
in 1958 and Resident of the 
European Commission from 1970 
to I97Z has not changed his view. 
His message is quite simple. The 
Community formers are produc- 
ing for too much, for a market that 
does not exist. 

He says: “It’s a crazy situation. 
We should have done something 
about it in the 1970s but all we did 
was patchwork. Now my fear is 
that my dream of 25 years ago will 
be ruined if we go on as we are" 
Mansholt's dream of a decent. 

U ving for formers in Europe and to 
stabilize prices by offering the 
formers a guaranteed price for 
certain products were adopted in 
1960 as the fundamental prin- 
ciples of the CAP. 

Today his blueprint for solving, 
the present crisis by reducing the 
amount of forming land is firmly 
on the agenda. Mansholt says 
there is no longer any choice. But 
now the surplus scandal has 
become so acute that he believes 
there has to be a global reduction 
in cultivated forming land in 
Europe of 20 per cent over the 
next 10 years, with the formers 
being compensated for the cut in 
profits out of the EEC budget

Top prophet: Dr Mansholt, concerned for die future of his brainchild 

6 The European Community has 
its back against the wall ’ 


“Scientists have calculated that 
we can feed the population of 
Europe in SO years* time with one 
third of the agricultural . area 
because of improving farming 
techniques," he says. “So we have 
to reduce the amount of land in 
order to cut bade on production. 

“If we followed this policy, it 
would knock one third off the cost 
and theoretically we could have no 
surpluses. There could even be the 
risk that we would have to 
import . . 1 and why not ? Look at 
the sugar situation. It’s a scandaL 
We’re producing 12 million tons 
of sugar a year but exporting 3.4 
milli on tons. So we’re over- 
producing by 30 per cent and 
ruining the world sugar market. 

“We should cut production and 


go back to being an importing area 
for sugar. It would be much 
cheaper. It’ll be difficult but we 
cannot carry on with the present 
patchwork policies. The Commu- 
nity has its back againstthe wall” 
To meet Dr Mansholt is not to 
discover a prophet of doom, 
despite his ominous words. He 
still clings to his original dream. 
He lives in retirement with his 
wife Henny in a large converted 
17th-century farmhouse in the 
tiny community of Wapserveen in 
the north of Holland. His whole 
life has been forming and even 
now he is writing a paper on the 
future of the CAP which will be 
aimed at those politicians whom 
he blames for lade of courage and 
foresight. 


• Jean-Baptiste Doum eng, 
known as the Red 
Billionaire, has rnaffe his 
fortune from exporting 
surplus EEC goods but his 
activities are stiB cloaked 
in secrecy. Meanwhile the 
Kremlin need never worry 
about a bread shortage 

A t the front of die 
bakery queue in Kiev, 
a Russian housewife 
tests the freshness of 
her huge Mack loaf. 
She has no idea 
where the wheat has come front; 
but she knows that the price — the 
equivalent of I6p — has hardly 
changed for 16 years. She goes 
home happy. 

In Paris the whisper is abroad: a 
quantity of grain Is avail- 
able. Among the first to hear is M 
Jean -Baptiste Doameng. He 
tenders; his offer is accepted. No 
details are published except the 
Hpcri—tiw of the Zb the 

caseef Doameng the destination is 

BkatytoheRmria. 

Toe grain is the resalt of over- 
prod action. It has been bought in 
by intervention and sold indirectly 
through - Hie European 
Commission’s Directorate General 
for Agriculture. Doumeng is given 
a subsidy for taking the mod oat of 
EEC hands. 

Again, the amount of the sub- 
sidy is not published but it b 
usually g e nerous. In recent grain 
sales to Moscow the price has bees 
$60 a tame, well below the market 
price — and the trader pockets 
much of the difference. It is easy to 
see why Doameng, the sou of a 
sharecropper from near Teatoare, 
has become known as the Red 
Billionaire. 

Trade experts admit that a 
substantial part of Domneng’t 
profits goes into the coffers of the 
pro-Sonet French Communist 
Party, thns subsidizing the Soviet 
propaganda effort in the West 
The Russia ns gain twice. 

Th e Coa uafas hm nalatahs ift 
its confidential subsidy arrange- 
ments me intended to prevent 
price undercutting by competitors ■ 
— a commercial rather than politi- 
cal motive. But sources dose to the 
G— mission say there is a list of 
politically unpopular destinations 
such as Russia or Libya to which 
the Co— baton remains i W* * - 


mined to export at cheap rates to 
reduce the food mountains. Syria 
is also on the secret list, and 
remains eligible for export sub- 
sidies despite recent EEC action 
against Damascus over its involve- 
ment in te r ror ism . 

Doameng, aged 66, rose from 
life as a shepherd to became the 
powerful iMiwg w g director 
majority share-holder of Inter- 
Agra, die most important export 
company of agricultural produce in 
Europe and the world’s number 
one exporter of agricultural pro- 
duce to Russia. 

According to his own estimates, 
the company, which includes some 
30 subsidiaries with more than 600 
employees, is set to make a profit 
of $ 10 to $15 million this year on a 
turnover of $3 bfltion. Doameng 
wifi, not reveal how much he 
receives in total from the EEC 
every year. He told The Timex, 
however, of a contract concluded 
with the Soviet Union for the sale 
of three million tonnes iff wheat at 
around $80 a tonne, at a time whea 
the EEC price was around $130 a 

fnwnp- T hat numng that OU that 

deal alone be received 5150 million 
from the EEC in the form of export 
restitutions, plus any commission 
he may have negotiated. 

All this is perfectly legitimate. 
Any exporter of EEC agncuttmal 


‘Bread is so plentiful 
that Russian 
peasants feed it 
to their animals ’ 


produce can benefit from sub- 
sidies. Doameng has simply been 
cleverer thaa most in winning the 
necessary contracts. The secret? 
“Hard work, having the con- 
fidence of the men in the market, 
and applying the methods of 
peasantry and Marxism to inter- 
national commerce,** be says. 

He has formidable contacts in 
the communist world, with which 
he has been trading for more thaa 
30 years. He to be the last 
firing Frenchman to have diim d 
with Stalin. But he does not deal 
only with the Soviet Bloc. 
Inter Agra sells a range of some 30 
agrienhtaal products and raw 
materials to more than 50 different 
cou nt ries. He is the second ex- 



Eastern promise: Jean-Baptiste Doumeng, Marxist wheeler-dealer 


porter of French vine to the US, 
for example. Being a communist 
“helps me with some," he admits, 
“hot irritates others**. 

Thanks to Doumeng and others 
like h™, the Kremlin continues to 
supply its population with almost 
unlimited quantities of bread. The 
EEC . exported 62 mflKon tonnes 
iff grain to tiie Soviet Union last 
year, and in the enrrent year is 
expected to sell Moscow another 
55 mill ion tames. 

Although food shortages are 
stfil commonplace in Russia, 
largely doe to erratic distribution, 
bread in general is so cheap and 
plentiful that many Russian peas- 
ants still feed it to their livestock in 
place of the more expensive feed 
grain. They also throw away large 
quantities of uneaten Mead, a 
habit once considered bad luck. 

At a popular bakery dose to 
Kiev railway station, none of the 


shoppers knew that the grain in 
their ioaves had come from the 
EEC, or perhaps the US or 
Argentina. Neither did they know 
that Moscow is also a regular 
purchaser of “aged" EEC batter — 
at least 18 months old — also at 
bargain basement prices. Some 
£137 million worth of subsidized 
tatter went to Moscow in 1985, at 
prices of 3Sp a pound, as opposed 
to more than £1 a pound paid in the 
West. 

Surprisingly, considering the 
benefits be derives from the CAP, 
the Red Billionaire support its 
reform. He is about to propose to 
the Common Market that it mop 
ap some of the main surpluses ly 
creating a new. ready-to-eat food 
product oat of chicken, wheat, 
eggs, sugar and batter, which 
could then be exported. He would, 
of course, be prepared to market 
such a product. 


' Mansholt's refusal to give up his 
personal campaign brings recollec- 
tions of his days with the Resis- 
tance during the Second World 
War, when he organized food 
supplies for all the agents in tbe 
west of tbe country. 

T was nearly caught several 
times," he recalls, “but the great 
secret was to have nothing down 
on paper." 

Today in bis low-ceflinged 
study, everything is down on 
paper. He has all the figures to 
prove his argument that some of 
the options for change now being 
considered by the Community are 
flawed. The options were laid out 
in a Green Paper last year by tbe 
European Commission. 

For example, quota systems. 
They already exist for sugar and 
milk but in each case, in 
Mansholt's eyes, production 
should be reduced dramatically — 
sugar by at least 20 per cent and 
milk by about 15 per cent. “But 
you can't have a quota system for 
cereal You couldn’t control it." 

Tbe second option is co- 


responsibility. the principle under 
which formers must share the 
financial burden for dealing with 
suipins production. ' 

“This is nonsense," he says. 
“Fanners will have no incentive 
to cooperate.” 

The third option is price reduc- 

‘A 10 per cent price 
reduction would cut 
UK farmers’ incomes 
by 70 per cent’ 


non. Mansholt is convinced that, 
for from helping to cut down on 
production, it will have the opp- 
osite effect “If there are price 
reductions for basic products like 
milk, cereal and beef of say 10 per 
cent over five years, many more 
small formers will go out of 
business and the bigger forms will 
produce more and more." 

He points out that although 
there are more than five million 


formers in Europe, three million 
are very small, what he calls social 
problem forms with no income; 
about two million are small but 
productive; and 1 10,000 are big, 
24.000 of them in Britain. 

“The big forms represent only 2 
per cent of the total, yet their 
output is 20 per cent," he explains. 
“It’s easy to say reduce prices but 
in foci a reduction of 10 per cent 
would mean a cut in income for 
formers in the United Kingdom of 
70 per cent. So a reduction in 
prices would immediately meet 
with great political resistance. ” 

The fourth option in the Green 
Paper, reduction of forming area, 
is, in Mansholt's view, the onl** 
true option. “The point about 
fallowing on a global basis is that 
production would be reduced all 
round and the system could be 
properly controlled,” he claims. 
“The three million social problem 
farms would have to be excluded 
but if you followed one fifth of the 
two million odd real farms, in 10 
years' lime you could have a 
balanced market." 


After a lifetime spent trying to 
win round his fellow marketeers to 
his way of thinking. Mansholt is 
conscious of the problems that lie 
ahead. 

“The technicians and scientists 
can see what is needed but tbe 
politicians have other interests,” 
he says. “They look over their 
shoulders at the farmers and the 
electorate. So we can’t do every- . 
thing that would be wise. We can 
only do what we can to get 
political agreement. 

“When we were setting up the 
Common Market agricultural pol- 
icy no one believed there would be 
such surpluses- Today we have to 
get rid of the surpluses, so we have 
to have following. 1 don’t see any 
other policy.”

Once upon a time, in a land 
uncluttered by “isms”, a witch 
— as every fully-fledged 
youngster knew — was an 
exceedingly unpleasant fe- 
male, with a tall black hat and 
broomstick, given to trans- 
forming her MBmias into 
toads. 

It was, quite simply, a 
matter of record, as plain as 
the rather pointed nose on her 
face, as much an established 
feet of childhood as the know- 
ledge that foiiies wave wands 
and dragons breathe fire. 

These days, however, it 
seems that witches are more 
dangerous than even the most 
susceptible of youngsters has 
been led to believe.

which has won awards all over

For the children’s book 
publishers, concerned with 
producing good stories that 
sell, it all presents something 
of a dilemma. With about 80 
percent of their output ending 
up on the shelves of school 
and public libraries, the rejec- 
tion of a book can make a 
significant difference to its 
profitability — and attempting 
to produce works that appeal 
to both the children and their 
adult watchdogs would appear 
to be growing increasingly 
difficult. 

Liz Attenborough, editorial 
director of Puffin, the 


aspect of the highly controver- 
sial homosexual children's 
book, Jenny Lives With Eric 
and Martin, is the fed that it is 
rather dulL “There are very 
few books dealing with that 
particular topic and therefore 
any book that does so is 
welcome,” says Nigel Akers, 
chairman of foe School li- 
braries Group. “Ideally, there 
should be a much wider 
choice.” 

It is a criticism shared by 
many of the publishers. 

“One longs to get more 
manuscripts from minority 
communities about what it’s 
like to be discriminated 
a gains t, but I don't think that 
is going to come from banning 
books written by others,” says 
Margaret Clark, director m 
charge of children's books at 
Bodiey Head. One of the few 
books on her list written by a 
West Indian. Sean s Red Bike, 
was banned by a London 
library for its “colonial 
attitude” due to the feet that 
the black hero went to tea with 
the family of his white friend. 

The feet is that while writ- 
for children is acknowl- 
by the experts as being 
harder than writing for adults, 
a successful children's book is 
considerably more lucrative 
than an* adult best-seller, with 
foe potential of remaining in 
{Hint indefinitely. 

Britain's most successful 


adults, no one has ever 
proved what effects it has on 
foe children themselves. 

According to Nicholas 
Tucker, lecturer in develop- 
mental psychology at Sussex 
University, who has made a 
study of the censorship of 
children's books, there is no 
doubt that children con be 
influenced by books; but we 
don't know white books, and 
we don't know which chil- 
dren, and we don't know in 
what way they are going to be 

infliw-nnftri 

“Some books are simply 
there to challenge preconcep- 
tions and children have as 
mute right to have their 
preconceptions challenged as 
the rest of os.” 

The apparent book-banning 
epidemic is causing sufficient 
concern to the Library Associ- 
ation for it to draw up a 10- 
page leaflet which it plans to 
send out to local councils early 
next year, providing informa- 
tion about foe powers and 
duties of public libraries. 

“This type of censorship 
still only manifests itself in a 
small minority of cases but it's 
enough to be worrying,” says 
the association's chief exec- 
utive, George Cunningham. 
“Of course there has to be 
selection, but there is a dif- 
ference between making an 
intellectual judgement on a 
book and being influenced by 
one's persona) views."

ever since time began, 
businessmen have been 
indulging in champagne and 
canapes on Concorde while 
their wives lunched off the 
leftovers from foe Sunday 
roast, and that the said , 
businessmen - never worried 
their prickly-barbered heads 
about such culinary inequal- 
ity- 

But women were, bora 
guilty, with a guilt that con- 
sumes their entire being the 
minute they begin haying a 
good time al work. Deep down 
inside we feel that the time 
will come when we will have 
to pay for the satisfaction of a 
job wefl done, the office 
camaraderie, the’ professional 
triumphs. This, in spite of foe 
feet that we can see with our 
own eyes that male high-fliers 
like Lew Grade; Charles Forte 


their children will accuse them 
of gross acgtecL 

Tbc female giriit-fector is 
something that has to be 
reckoned with if women are to 
fed comfortable in their ca- 
reers — and that’s what we all 
want, isn’t it? The first step 
might be to take their marital 
lives into account To start 
with, it wouldn't hurt to ask 
their husbands along to of- 
ficial business functions. 

This will call for a different 
code of behaviour on foe part 
of foe chairman, and chief 
executives. Until now, they 
have been able to switch on to 
auto-pilot on these occasions 
because the spouses of their 
employees have all been fe- 
male. A “Hello, you goigeous 
creature. My goodness, you’re 
looking lovelier than ever, I 
keep telling old Fred he’s a 
lucky man to have somebody 
like you devoting her life to 
looking after him”, and they 
feel they have done their bit. 

They may have to vary foe 
routine a hit when the 


accompanying partners are 
men. But it mil be worth their 


while. And it will improve foe 
quality of my life, too, for I 
have lost count of female 
colleagues who have said to 
me: “You’re so lucky, you 
only have yourself to think 
about.” It brings me out in a 
horrible rash of guilt.

When we 


say you can go 
far, we don’t 
just mean on 
the beat. 


Everyone who joins the Met follows the same path at first. 

You start as a constable on probation for two years, 
receiving intensive training in policing skills. Both in the class- 
room and on the streets of London. This provides you with a 
solid foundation for the rest of your career, whether you warn 
to specialise, seek promotion, or both. 

To get to the top, well expect you to gain as much experi- 
ence as possible of the many different aspects or police work. 

You can go just as far as your ability and individual skills 
will take you- When you’ve completed your probationary training, 
you can set your sights on the competitive sergeants exam. 

After only four years as a Sergeant provided you pass 
another competitive exam, you will be promoted to Inspector. 

After that , further promotion to Chief Inspector and above 
is purely on merit and your track record as a police officer. 

Obviously, its a challenging career that won't suit everyone. 
The rewards, both personal and financial, are high at every leveL 
But so are the standards of our two day selection process. 

To stand a chance, you must be at least IN' j. and 172 ems 
tall for a man. or KiU cm? for a woman. Ideally. \ou should have 
around five ‘O' levels, but qualifications aren't everything.

Boesky echoes over Iran 

by George Will SRK 


Washington 

If, as is said, there is nothing like a 
calamity to take your mind off 
your troubles, the Reagan admin- 
istration can console itself with 
this thought about the mis- 
handling of the aftermath of its 
Iran misadventures: no one is 
talking about the budget deficit 

The misadventure now has the 
familiar attribute of Washington’s 
consuming obsessions. The result 
of attempts to put it to rest is a 
growth in the number of questions 
about it 

A presidential speech and news 
conference have been devoted to 
it and all they have accomplished 
is to put the President on the edge 
of a precipice. He seems defensive, 
evasive, ill at ease - in foort the 
one thing he of all leaden dare not 
seem: out of character. We may be 
about to sec realized the potential 
volatility of public opinion that 
has been fixed on an intensely 
personal affection fora president's 
personality. 

Today the nation’s mind is 
ambivalent unformed — soft wax 
ready to receive fresh imprints. 
One political commentator has 
noted that 20 per cent of those 


who voted in the midterm elec- 
tions earlier this month did so in 
eight states that elected four 
Democratic and four Republican 
governors while in each case 
choosing a senator of the other 
party. Another clue to the 
country’s mood is that nine of the 
new senators have served in the 
House, one has served there and in 
a cabinet office and three otters 
have been governors. The elec- 
torate is tired of amateurism and 
craves competence. 

The Ir anian episode radiates 
incompetence — in its substance, 
execution and apologia. This, after 
the Daniloff affair and the summit 
fiasco, has encouraged this judg- 
ment: the aides now in dose 
contact with Reagan are the least 
distinguished such group to serve 
any president since die war. 

The nation’s disposition regard- 
ing Reagan may be quite change- 
able, not because the nation is 
unusually volatile but because of 
the nature of Regan's relationship 
with the nation. After the loss of 


the Senate, his aides and support- 
ers deflected the suggestion that he 
is a lame duck, arguing that no one 
enjoying such a high job-approval 
rating, and a personal popularity 
unrivalled since Eisenhower, can 
be lame. 

But the botching of Iran policy 
will take a toll unless he and ms 
administration quictiy put an end 
to the truculence, sophistry and 
score-settling among rivals frying 
to keep their skirts dean, and 
grudging over-la wyered explana- 
tions. 

The presidency, constitu- 
tionally, is an inherently weak 
office. There is little a president 
can do on his own except sway die 

country and so move Congress. 
Thus, the power of tte presidency, 
unlike, say .the power of the office 
of the British prime minis ter, 
varies substantially with tte qual- 
ities of the occupant And the 
power of a particular president can 
vary radically with swings in the 
public’s perceptions of him. 

What caused scalding c ri tic is m 
of Reagan from some usually 


sympathetic persons during the 
Daniloff affair was the words- 

mean-whatever-we-choosc abuse 

of lan guage! The swap was no 
swap, tte summit not a summit 
Similar intellectual wmiption has 
seeped into administration state- 
ments about Iran, evasive stale- 


half concerning who US o fficia ls 
are dealing with in Iran and why. 

Public revulsion about this may 
be magnified by the coincidental 
eruption of the Boesky scandal on 
Wall Street The political dimate, 
it has been argued, can be con- 
ditioned by tte echo of one event 
in an unrelated event, and vice 
versa. Evidence of bad judgment 
and bad faith at the cenfre of 
government may soon mix in the 
public min d with a Niagara of 
evidence of corruption at the 
symbolic centre or tte private 
sector. The public is a pt to be 
made uneasy by a vague sense of 
envelo pin g malpractice in im- 
portant institutions. 

To insulate itself from this, the 
administration needs to try can- 
dour, which means acknowledging 
serious mistakes. But it may be too 
late for that. 


Congressional hearings begin this week on the 
Iranian fiasco. The focus will almost certainly 
be on procedure. Why were tte appropriate 
congressional committees not informed? Why 
were experts In the bnre&ocxacy bypassed? 
Senator Patrick Leahy has complained: “They 
were running the State Department, the CIA 
and the Defense Department out of the 
basement of the White House withoat any kind 
of congressional oversight. And they end up 
with a disaster." 


The one success 


Is that really what caused tte disaster? Tte 
National Security Cornell can, of coarse, be 
tamed. Bnt it is precisely because (he CIA was 
so tamed, and its secrecy comprom i sed by tte 
need to notify a leaky Congress of even tte most 
sensitive operations, that presidents have 
entrusted their most secret dealings to tte NSC 
Tte problem with tte Iran negotiations was 


not tte secrecy. Indeed, tte secrecy, tasting for 
18 months, was its major, its only, achievement 
Tte problem was tte pdky itself. Change tte 
st rne tn r e to prevent a McFariane fiasco In Iran 
and yon prevent a Kissinger breakthrough on 
China. In tte Iran negotiations, it was not tte 
s truc tur e that was at find! hot tte people 
responsible for tte botch.

Our century has seen enough 
massacres, pogroms and exter- 
minations to turn the seven seas 
red with blood. But even among a 
list which includes Stalin’s slaugh- 
tered millions and the Holocaust 
itself, a peculiar and unique horror 
still clings to the genocidal mad- 
ness of the Khmer Rouge in 
Cambodia. It certainly has one 
distinction: they murdered a larger 
proportion of the population than 
any of their competitors. (An 
equivalent proportion in Britain 
would number eight million.) 

The story has been told many 


Bernard Levin 


times (most memorably, perhaps, 
in the film The Killing Fields), and 
it has recently been told again in a 
book called Cambodian Witness 
(published by Faber). It is the 
autobiography of a Cambodian 
who went through the nightmare, 
and woke to find it true; his name 
is Someth May, and his story is 
edited and introduced by James 
Fenton. Please read the following 
extract: not because it is the most 
dreadful thing in the book - there 
are episodes for worse — but 
because the point I want to make 
turns upon a particular aspect of 
it. 

Comrade Tek . . . had worked 
himself up into a rage. He 
approached the pile of struggling 
monkeys (be had broken their 
arms and lied their feet together]. 


The evil some 
men do is bom 
within them 


'fmms

and killed them one by one 
. . . with a blow to tbe back of the 


. . . with a blow to tbe back of the 
skull . . . ‘And now,' he said. Til 
show you the way I used to kill the 
Lon Nol soldiers when we caught 
them, and the way to get the liver 
out.' He laid the last monkey flat 
on the ground ... He made a cut 
to the stomach. Then he pressed 
hard on the incision with both 
hands. The monkey screeched. 
The liver came out whole. Com- 
rade Tek then slit the animal's 
throat. He said. ‘If it had been a 
man, I would have put my foot in 
the cut to get the right pressure — 
otherwise the liver never comes 
out properly.’ 

Reviewing the book, in the 
Guardian. Salman Rushdie fin- 
ished like this: "... how can men 
become like Comrade Tek? I don’t 
know the answer . . . But the ter- 
rible lesson of our century is that it 
isn't difficult. I could be Comrade 
Tek. And so could you." 

It is Mr Rushdie's conclusion 
that I wish to examine, for I do not 
believe it is true. I do not believe 
that Salman Rushdie could be- 
come such a man as Tek, and 1 do 
not believe that I could, either. I 
do not believe that, in societies 
like ours, perhaps in any society, 
more than a very small number of 
people are like Tek, or could 
become like him. 

I can do, and have done, many 
bad acts; hurtful, harmful, in- 
excusable. So have we all, other 
than the saints. We could all do 
things worse than we have done 
already, and under intolerable 
pressure we could do worse still; I 
know that if 1 were tortured to 
reveal information that would 
lead to someone else’s death, I 
would not have the strength or 
fortitude to resist There are other 
kinds of pressure, too. less direct

but more insidious. Choose your 
own — money? power? flesh? — 
and while you are choosing tell me 
whether if the Devil offered you all 
the kingdoms of the earth you, 
too, would say "Get thee hence, 
Satan”. It has just occurred to me 
that I have in my time broken a 
majority of the Ten Command- 
meats. and of the ones I have no t 
broken, I could not swear that I 
am incapable of adding them to 
the list, not even “Thou shall not 
kill". 

We are all sinners. In certain 
circumstances almost all of us 
could rob, petjure, do violence on 
another. Some could do these 
things more easily than others; 
there are graduations of badness. 
But there is a gap in the spectrum; 
and almost all of us, including 
Salman Rushdie and me, remain 
on the safe side of the gap, and 
always will, while Comrade Tek 
and a handful more are beyond h. 

But this is not simply a feet, 
without antecedents or progeny, it 
enshrines two enormous and vital 
truths. The first is that some 
people are evil; are evil, not are 
made evil- The greatest and most 
dangerous lie of our time is that we 
are solely the result of our upbring- 


ing, our milieu, our physical 
surroundings, our schooling, our 
degree of affluence or poverty, our 
employment or employment pros- 
pects, our social or familial relat- 
ionships and our sex lives, 
along with the weather, the 
threat of war, other people's 
smoking, SeUafield and the Free- 
masons. 

I said that that is the most 
dangerous tie; wherein is tbe 
danger? In the determinism to 
which it leads; the effects of that 
determinism can be seen all round 
us, and tbe most penurious of its 
effects arc the condonation of guilt 
and the dismissal of responsibil- 
ity. When there is next a riot in 
Toxteth, Bristol or Broadwater 
Farm, who will dare to say, amid 
the deafening chorus of exculpa- 
tions — unemployment, substan- 
dard housing, racism, police 
brutality, — that some people have 
a propensity to criminal behav- 
iour by reason of what they wish to 
be, not of what has been done to 
them? 

In any urban riot in this 
country, those doing the rioting 
are a small minority of those who 
live in the area of the riot; tte 
peaceable majority, however, live 


in the same conditions as tte 
violent few, and arc therefore 
subject to the same riot-indnring 
pressures. Why do they not join 
in? But to ask the question that 
way round is already to surrender, 
let us ask, instead, why do the 
rioters riot? The correct answer is: 
because they want to. But that 
answer is never given. For that 
matter, why do you think that 
almost all talk of the drug problem 
is couched in terms of the peddlers 
and pushers, who are seen as 
uniquely evil figures because they 
thrift their poisonous wares into 
the hands of their victims. 
“Victims"; what do you suppose 
would happen if we started to refer 
to them as accessories? 

If our era needs an epitaph, and 
it may need one sooner than it 
thinks, how about “It’s not our 
fault"? For assuredly the now 
dominant ideology may thus be 
summed up. It is no longer 
fashionable, of course, to rely on 
Freud for an excuse; Marx is much 
more comprehensively satisfying. 
Bui amid the satisfaction res- 
ponsibility dissolves. 

And I believe that Mr Rushdie’s 
argument — that we could all learn 
to do unspeakable evil — is only 
the other Janus-faoe of that state of 
affair s. No doubt we all have in us 
the impulses which, if given rein, 
will lead us into real wickedness: 
But most of us do not give those 
impulses rein, and we refuse to do 
so because we think that doing so 
is wrong. Some people, however, 
do not mind doing wrong, if it 
means they can get hold of 
somebody else’s wallet. We call 
these people wrong-doers; or 
rather, we used to call them 
wrong-doers, but we are more 
likely today to call them under- 
privileged. 

I ask again: are we or are we not 
responsible for our own lives? I ! 
think we are, and one very 
important part of that responsibil- 
ity is ensuring that for us it is not, ! 
as Mr Rushdie says, easy to 
become like Comrade Tek, but 
impossible. 

We do have a choice, every 
minute of everyday. I said that the 
inability of most people to behave 
like Tek bears witness to two great 
truths. I have dealt with one of 
them — the fact that some people 
are evil and don’t mind a bit; but 
the other is more important. It is 
this: the inabHily to do great evil 
comes as much from our own win 
as does the propensity to steal, 
assault and burn. If we do not 
become Comrade Tek it is because 
we decide not to, just as we stab a 
policeman because we feel like it. 

Yet we cannot leave the argu- 
ment there, for there is the most 
tremendous question of aD to be 
asked, though not answered. It is: 
Why do most people, gives tte 
choice of being good or bad, 
choose to be good? Whatever tbe 
answer to that question, it is an 
eternal repro ach to Comrade Tek, 
and a no less enduring assurance 
that nobody has to be like him.

Hindley’s freedom gamble overtrumped? 


The police search on Sadcfleworth 
Moor for two other possible 
victims of murderers lan Brady 
and Myra Hindley is the result of a 
contest between a man with 
nothing to lose and a woman with 
everything to gain. The stakes are 
brutally simple. On Hindley’s 
side, release ; on Brady’s side, to 
prevent it 

Only they know what really 
happened 20 odd years ago, of 
how many other children or old 
men were done to death, and 
where they are buried, it is a 
trump card which both have 
played in the last week; and Brady 
may have played it decisively. 

This is how the recent drama is 
seen by former armed robber John 
McVicar who escaped from Dur- 
ham jail’s high-security wing in 
1968 and, after recapture two years 
later, reformed and took a BSc. 
Since release in 1978 he has made a 
succesfo! living by writing. 

Brady was in Durham jail at the 
same time as McVicar. During a 
riot, when the prison offices were 
taken over, McVicar read his file, 
and has taken a strong interest in 
the case ever since. Unlike aca- 
demic penologists, he speaks from 
first-hand experience of the emo- 
tional attitudes of prisoners serv- 
ing long or indeterminate 
sentences - “lifers.” 


“There are two sorts," he says. 
“There are those who hope to 
work their ticket by convincing 
the authorities they have really 
changed. Only that way will they 


be released early on licence. The 
vast majority of lifers fall into this 


category, and Myra Hindley is one 
of them. 


“The other group — far fewer — 
is made up of the foo-hopers' who 
know they will not be released 
come what may. lan Brady falls 
into this category." 

Tbe fact that Hindley has hopes 
of ultimate release and Brady does 
not has led to a growing estrange- 
ment between the former lovers 
and partners in murder, McVicar 
suggests, amplified by Hindley’s 
watt-publicised decision some 
years ago to “reform". For her 
“reformation" involved not only 
conversion to Catholicism, the 
cultivation of people of influence 
such as Lord Longford, taking an 


Open University degree and 
presenting herself as remorseful 
and penitent. It involved off- 
loading on to Brady as much of the 
blame for her crimes as possible. 
And Hindley was all Brady had. 

“For several years after starting 
his sentence the mainstay of 
Brady’s existence was his relation- 
ship with Hindley," McVicar says. 
“He wrote all his letters to her- 1 


read a number of them — and he 
periodically went on hunger suite 
to fry to persuade the Home Office 
to let them marry. When she broke 
away from him he intiafly watched 
impassively but then he gradually 
turned to subverting her game. He 
disparaged ter religious conver- 
sion, he scorned her friendship 
with Lord Longford, he re- 
proached her for not taking her 
punishment. 

“He knew that he couldn’t get 
out and. by telling about the other 
bodies, he could stop her getting 
out too. 

“Had Hindley played her cards 
properly she should have come 
dean completely at the time of ter 
conversion. It would have given 
her a powerful hand and perhaps a 
chance of release, some tea years 
on. which would be about now. 
But, no doubt calculating it would 
harm her chances, she played safe 
and did not telL She calculated 
wrongly. Her mistake was in 
believing that Brady would never 
reveal anything to implicate him- 
self in other murders. 

“A year ago. after 21 years. 
Brady took up this trump caxd and 
told a reporter there were other 
victims on the moors. By not 
giving the reporter exact details, 
be ensured that it would all be long 
and drawn out. Brady wants 


Hindley playing; he doesn’t want 
to end the game. 

“Now that Brady may be telling 
alL Hindley has had to do some- 
thing herself; so foe is almost 
coming dean. She is identifying 
where the bodies arc buried. But 
she has indicated, naturally, that 
her knowledge comes only be- 
cause Brady showed a compulsive 
interest in vishing those spots, not 
because she had any pan. in the 
deaths. 

“Her statement that she was 
suddenly moved to co-operate by 
the letter from Keith Bennett’s 
mother is unbelievable; there have 
been many appeals to her before to 
tell what she knew and she ignored 
them alL 

“When they find the bodies, 
there will have to be a trial or, at 
the v«y least, an inquest Either 
way, it is difficult to see how 
responsibility for the murders will 
not be laid on both Brady and 
Hindley. Apart from the weight 
the authorities will give to this in 
any future consideration of her 
case. Hindley has now been 
exposed as a duplicitous player in 
‘working your ticket*. ” ‘ 

McVicar’s conclusion is one 


Lord Longford might care to 
ponder. “In effect," he says, “she 
joins Brady as a no-hoper."

When justice 
is at fault 


IN 


Tte motion by a number of 
Conservative MPs urging tte rest- 
oration of the ’death penalty for 
acts of terrorism coincides with 
the publication of evide n c e ca s t ing 
doubt on the validity of the 
conviction of 17 men and women 
for IRA bomb attacks in Bir- 
mingham and Guildford in the 
mid-1970s. Had the death penalty 
still been available it is highly 
likely that the 10 found gnflty of 
murder would have been h a ngeri - 

Tfeey have now been in prison 
for more t te" a decade. In that 
riiwp , they say, others have con- 
fessed to tbe crimes. Any open- 
minted person who reads two 
recent books on the subject* must 
conclude that Douglas Hurd, tte 
Home Secretary, should order 
their cases to here-examined. 

I do not intend going into detail 
on tte validity of the confessions 
or circumstantial contradictions 
but to consider why h is so 
difficult to secure official action 
after the new evidence. One 
difficulty is the lack of agreement 
on the most suitable type of 
process. Z understand that some, if 
not all, of those convicted do not 
wish simply to be given royal 
pardons — even if that were to be 
thought an appropriate response ~ 
on the grounds that, after all this 
they want evidence to be 
heard in public and thereby public 
recognition of their innocence. 

But it is probably impo ssible to 
have a satisfactory retrial after so 
long. Perhaps some special 
commission of investigation be- 
fore reference back to tte Court of 


Appeal is tte best method. 

It would be intolerable if Hurd 
were to use tte lack of an 
established process of review as a 
reason for delay. The question of 
principle he faces must be whether 
or not the evidence warrants 
examination. Tte method to be 
used could then be determined on 
pragmatic grounds. 

Tte greatest difficulty, however, 
lies in the implications for law 
enforcement of even daring to 
admit the possibility that tte 
police need illegitimate means to 
extract usable confessions and that 
our judicial strnetnre is inad- 
equate to discern a miscarriage of 
justice on such a huge scale. 
According to tte two books, not 
only could 17 individuals have 
been convicted in error, and given 
long sentences, but those guilty of 
the bombings may still be free. 

These implications were dearly 
appreciated by Mr Justice Bridge 
in his summing up in tte trial of 
the six Irishmen convicted of tte 
Birmingham bombing. If they 
were telling tte truth, he said, tte 
police had been involved, in a 
conspiracy “unprecedented in tte 
annak of British criminal hist- 
ory.” He went on to point out the 
depth of collaboration between 
two police forces that would have 
been required to fabricate such 
perjured evidence. 

I doubt whether anyone outside 
tte police can really appreciate tte 
pressure they come under to 
assuage public outrage after vi- 
cious crimes such as these. Arrests 
are imperative. 

The police deserve, and by and 
large receive, public support in 
their work but tte difficult and 
delicate question for each MP and 
member of a police authority is 


whax to say and do when itappears 
that they have acted reprehensroiy 
or responded inadequately over a 
matter of serious public concern. 

I was a member o* the West 
Yorkshire Police Authority dunng 
the Yorkshire Ripper inquiries. 
Some members were legitimacy 
critical of certain, aspects of the 
investigation, particularly me my- 
opic reliance on the infamous 
“Geordie tape" and letters. But 
tte question over which we ag- 
onized was whether to voice those 
opinions outright during the in- 
tense public anguish over the 
continuing murders. 

As it happens I said nothing j 

until the case was solved, but I am ' 

far from sure that was right. I did 
however have no such inhibitions 
afterwards when tte obsessive 
secrecy about tte reports into tte 
conduct of the case seemed to me 
to be completely unjustified. Even 
then, when I and another Liberal 
colleague put our names to a 
statement, we had to endure 
considerable criticism and even 
harassment from both Labour and 
Conservative members. 

Policing cannot be a secret 
unacco untable task. Even under 
our present checks and balances it 
can lapse into abuses of power that 
at best make tte innocent citizen 
reluctant thereafter to assist the 
police and at worst result in 
physical abuse. I find a small but 
growing number of people other- 
wise disposed to support the 
police who have been alienated by 
some minor incident. I do not 
believe that the police understand 9 
the dangers of such a cumulative 
feeling. Usually such matters are 
not considered worth complaining 
about officially and the com- 
plaints are in any case often to do 
with altitudes and therefore tech- 
nically improvable. 

Tte police response to such 
comments is often defensive and 
negative. The standard reply is: 
“We are under pressure; you give 
us an impossible job; you don’t 
give us tte resources we tell you 
we need; and then you criticize us 
for doing our best" I sympathize 
with such feelings but reject the 
implication that our duty is to 
support whatever senior police 
officers say. That road leads to a 
beleagured and resentful police 
force emerging from its bunkers 
only in armoured vehicles. 

I take the view that a misplaced 
reluctance to expose police prac- 
tice for good or ill actually fosters 
the worst suspicions and is of no 
benefit to the police: I believe that 
Sir Robert Mark’s determination, 
when Commissioner of tte Metro- 
politan Police, to root out corrup- 
tion and malpractice enhanced the 
Met’s public image. That example 
should be heeded by the Home 
Secretary and his advisers. Even 
better would be public support for 
a review of the Birmingham and 
Guildford cases from tbe four 
chief constables involved. 

We need to develop legal 
machinery able to assuage concern 
about possible miscarriages of 
justice. It ought not to depend on 
investigative writers, however 
compelling their books.

SHELVING THE FUTURE 


intrusion 

p} paper 


a a 


Autumn hints about tax cuts 
havea mixed history. Cabiuet- 
levd ram ours at die end of 
1984 of a possible £3 billion off 
income tax in the next Budget 
achieved only a New Year nm 
on the pound. Last year, the 
Chanc ellor used the preferred 
practice of reducing expecta- 
tions, though in the end he 
managed a penny off the 
standard rate. When he ap- 
peared before the Treasury 
Select Committee last week, 
Mr Lawson made it clear that 
his aim of a 25 per cent 
standard rate will not be 
reached in his 1987 Bodge! 

This was implicit in the 
arithmetic of the autumn 
statement. Spending plans for 
next year have been raised by 
£4.75 billion, roughly the cost 
of cutting the four paints off 
income tax needed to achieve 
the target Both the Chancellor 
and the Prime Minister have 
made it plain that borrowing 
targets are not to be relaxed. So 
, as the Chancellor clearly and 
correctly put it, a pound more 
on public spending is a pound 
not available for tax cuts. 

It is more a reflection of a 
long tradition of pie-electoral 
elasticity than of Mr Lawson's 
own ream! that financial mar- 
kets did not believe a word of 
this at the time of the autumn 
statement. On that occasion, 
the Chancellor understandably 
did not speedy the tax implica- 
tions of paying teachers more 
and allowing for more local 
authority capital spending. 

Sceptical currency dealers 
assumed that, through some 
helpful change in presentation, 
room would still be found for 
the elusive tax cuts. Following 
the glossing over money tar- 
gets, the Chancellor’s delay in 
raising interest rates to support 
sterling and the apparent lar- 
gesse on spending, cynics at 


^ ome and abroad scented a 
retreat on fiscal discipline to 
jonie. Consequently, sterling 
has been under some degree of 

pressure ever since. 

The Chancellor’s reassur- 
ance is welcome. It was ad- 
dressed to a wider audience, in 
t andem with a repeated 
confir mati on that, however 
the Prime Minister might 
muse, he is not prepared to see 
the pound drop below its 
current level of about 68 on the 
Bank of England’s Steriing 
Index. This has already barf a 
mil d effect on the exchanges. 

In the middle of a consumer 
boom, there isno case for a 
rise in borrowing to finance 
general income tax cuts, even 
on old notions of demand 
management Fiscal manage- 
ment of demand, indeed, was 
discredited precisely because, 
in practice, higher gove rnme nt 
borrowing stemmed from a 
political failure to balance the 
books. 

If the Chancellor’s pro- 
clamation of sdfdisdpline is 
welcome, however, the need 
for it is not The Government 
has not wanted public spend- 
ing to rise. It will go up because 
the Treasury is now taking a 
realistic view of past failures of 
control, and because , open- 
ended benefit spending (as 
well as special measures) re- 
flect past failures over un- 
employment 

The problems of control 
over local authority capital 
spending were highlighted by 
the Public Accounts Commit- 
tee last wedt Its report dem- 
onstrated how unsympathetic 
authorities had used their 
discretion to concentrate cuts 
on file maintenance of schools, 
roads and housing. The 
Government has now pro- 
posed alternative methods of 
control. But perfection is 


SAD CYPRUS 


Mr Rauf Denktas will return 
to Turkish Cyprus tom orrow , 
leaving behind an increasing 
number of people, in Britain 
: who believe that his -island’s 
problems are Insoluble — ' for 
the time being anyway. This is 
not to say that it is entirely his 
fault; indeed there are those, 
who would say that if is not his 
.. fault at all It is rather to regret 
the lack of political win in 
either Cypriot community to 
bridge the gap between them. 

Senor Javier Perez de 
Cuellar, Secretary General of 
> the United Nations,, has pre- 
sented three sets of peace 
proposals in less than two 
years — so far to no avail. The 
first initiative in January 1985 
collapsed because President 
Kyprianou, the island’s Greek 
* Cypriot leader, felt unable to 
; accept it as it stood. A second 
draft several months later was 
agreeable to him, but not to Mr 
Denktas and the Turkish 
minority. The third, earlier 
this year, tried to steer a path 
. between the two but succeeded 
only in pleasing one side (this 
time Mr Denktas again) but 
fe not the other. While President 
Kyprianou has not exactly said 
“no”, he has not said “yes” 
either — and has made it fairiy 
clear that he will not do so. 

The proposals for a federal 
solution to the island’s trou- 
bles are in difficulties not so 
much because of what they 
include as because of what 
they do not Greek Cypriots 
complain that they do not deal 
effectively with three key is- 
sues; guarantees for the 
island’s future integrity; the 
three “basic freedoms” for all 
citizens to move, work and 
settle wherever they want; and 


the withdrawal of Turkish 
troops and settlers from main- 
land Turkey. It is the last of 
these which Greek Cypriots 
regard as a. sine qua non. How 
many troops sdnaixt from the 
mvasion fbroe of 1974 is in 
itsetf A matter for argument • 
The - Turks say there are 
17,000, the Greeks that there 
were 25,000 until recently, 
since' when the number has 
considerably risen. 

The latest UN proposals 
provide for a series of working 
groups to sort out these 
remaining issues — including a 
timetable for troop withdraw- 
als — once the draft agreement 
has been signed. President 
Kyprianou and the Greek- 
speaking community are, how- 
ever, refusing to accept this 
because they do not trust the 
Turks. The latter, they con- 
tend, would find some excuse 
to veto the arrangements once 
the present Greek government 
had been disbanded, and the: 
troops would remain. The 
Ankara government would 
then be able to influence 
affairs through its intimidating 
military presence. 

Certainly Mr Denktas spirit- 
edly defends the need for 
Turkish troops, pointing to the 
attempted Greek Cypriot coup 
which prompted the Turkish 
intervention in 1974. Mean- 
while, he has used his British 
visit to demand official recog- 
nition by London of his Turk- 
ish Republic of Northern 
Cyrpsus ‘ (TRNC) which de- 
clared itself an independent 
state in November 1983, with 
himself as president Britain is 
unlikely to grant this particular 
wish, so Mr Denktas will have 
to resign himself to leaning on 


impossible so long as there are 
such startling mismatches be- 
tween local discretion ami 
. local taxation. 

But tax cuts are not simply a 
route to political popularity 
that may temporarily get a 
lower priority. They are, as 
Opposition parties still fell to 
recognize, an economic neces- 
sity to improve incentives and 
to loosen the economic const- 
. ipation that still grips Europe. 

President Reagan’s tax re- 
forms have shifted the targets 
of tax reform worldwide. By 
comparison, as Mrs Thatcher 
noted last week, our top rate of 
60 per cent now looks almost 
as bad as the the 83 per cent 
inherited in 1979. And if 
excessive taxation at the lower 
end of the scale does not 
threaten SUCh an immediate 
brain drain, it fundamentally 
hinders productivity and 
employment prospects. 

Hopes of general Budget tax 
cuts should not be abandoned 
yet For Mr Lawson’s desire to 
trim expectations last week 
was as strong as his need to 
reassure markets. Buoyant tax 
revenue; should allow borrow- 
ing targets to be met in the 
current fiscal year despite an 
overshoot in spending. If that 
trend can convincingly be 
projected ahead — as today’s 
new forecast from the London 
Business School suggests — 
sound finance and lower in- 
come tax rates might still go 
hand in hand. The T.RS cal- 
culates that, on current rev- 
enue trends, the standard rate 
might be cut two points to 27 
per cent The degree of leeway, 
if any, will again determine 
whether the Chancellor aims 
for the headlines, or puts the 
emphasis on more modest but 
carefully directed measures. 
Either way, tax reform and lax 
cuts must not be put back on 
the shelf yet again. 


the government in Ankar a for 
some time. 


The UN Secretary-General 
has said that,left to himsetfchc 
could; settle the Cyprus ques- 
tion in an hour. Two of his 
aides were recently sounding 
out Messrs Kyprianou and 
Denktas separately in an effort 
to explore more common 
ground. One possible first step 
would' be for Turkey to reduce 
its troop level in the North to a 
brigade size force of about 
5,000. That should be enough 
to instill confidence in the 
Turkish Cypriot . community 
and would at the same time be 
a demonstration iff good faith 
towards the Greek community 
in the South. At the same time, 
President Kyprianou should 
signal his preparedness to 
accept such a concession as the 
kind of token he requires. 


Both communities say they 
would rather have no agree- 
ment at all thqn a bad one. 
This sounds sensible enough. 
But the longer the present 
deadlock continues, the more 
difficult it will be to break it 
Certainly the Greek Cypriots 
recognise that time is onthe 
side of Mr Denktas, if only 
because it helps him to 
consolidate the TRNC 


As a member of Nato, with 
its own sovereign base areas in 
the South and its radar station 
atop Mount Olympus, Britain 
has a plain i n t e rest in an 
amicable settlement There 
would seem to be little hope of 
this in the near future, how- 
ever, unless the two commu- 
nities can be persuaded to 
accept the kind of compromise 
outlined above. 




NOT IN FRONT OF THE CENSORS 




. 4* 


„.r 

ii«* 



It is a commonplace of politi- 
cal theory that although 
censorship requires very 
powerful justification where 
adults are concerned, it can be 
employed much more readily 
for the protection of childien. 
What is startling about recent 
reports of school and local 
libraries banning certain 
children's books, then, is not 
the feet of censorship but its 
character. 

Obscenity today, in the sus- 
picious imaginations of school 
ami local library censors, is the 
% obscenity of racism or sexism 
f and is located in books like 
Huckleberry Finn, Dr Doolittle 
and Biggies. In today’s Times 
for instance, Sally Brompton 
cites the case of Roald Dahl’s 
very popular book, The 
Witches, which has been 
banned by some libraries be- 
cause, among other grounds, 

witches area sexist concept. 


Yet a rihfld, much more 
wisely, would surdy note that 
the least interesting thing 
about a witch is that she is a 
woman. Witches can fly on 
broomsticks, cast spells on 
lovely princesses mid turn' 
children into toads. No child is 
ffkel y to confuse such a fantas- 
tic figure with the Modem 
Woman. And insofar as chil- 
dren have a choice in the 
matter, they would probably 
prefer to spend time with the 
former. Indeed, a sharper 
feminist perspective would 
single out witches as desirable 
nfle models for the liberated 
schoolgirl 

To see a witch mainly as an 
unpleasant woman reveals 'ah 
imagination which .'has pro- 
grammed itself to notice cmly 
sexism or racism and to ignore 
everything rise. It is hardly 
surprising that .--such an 
Ima ginati on would regard 


Huckleberry Finn as a racist 
novel For there is racism in 
•tiie book. Hack hims elf is a 
good-natured, easy-going, rac- 
ist scamp who regards the 
slave Jim, as he regards all 
black people, as just an ig- 
norant nigger. But when on 
- their journey down the river, 
Jim shows himself to be 
stronger source of help and a 
kinder friend than Huck de- 
serves, Buck realises the 
foolishness and wickedness of 
his earlier contempt 

Remove the oily racism 
from Huck, however, and you 
remove the anti-racist mes- 
sagje. You also remove the core 
of a magical and moving story. 
It would become little more 
than an entertaining pica- 
resque novel 

From such guardianship 
children need, io be protected. 
The growth of their imagina- 
tion might be stunted. 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Front-Hne instability in Africa 


From Major-General Sir John 
Adand 

Sir, Mr Tinlrm (November 15) is 
right in saying that Pretoria’s 
campaign of destabilization 
mounted neighbouring 

states is the most damaging threat 
to peace and progress in that 
troubled ansa. It is hard to 
understand what benefit even the 
South African regime expects to 
gain from it. 

1 have just returned from Zim- 
babwe, where I had talks with Mr 
Mugabe and other leaders with 
whom, as Commander of the 
Commonwealth Monitoring 
Force, I had negotiated during the 
elections and transition to in- 
dependence in 1980. 

Mr Mugabe reviewed the situa- 
tion in remarkable detail and with 
the frankness one expects from 
him, but also with notable mod- 
eration; and the logic of his 
analysis of present difficulties was 
devastating in its clarity. The 
support he now so evidently and 
almost universally enjoys in Zim- 
babwe must be the envy of 
political leaders elsewhere in tire 
world. 

From these meetings it is dear 
to me that one or the major 
problems confronting tire front- 
line states is the increasing pres- 


sure from the Mozambique 
National Resistance on the road, 
rail and pipeline links through 
Mozambique to the coast. The 
defence of these vital facilities is 
already presenting Zimbabwe 
with heavy and increasing finan- 
cial costs and a major commit- 
ment in terms of men and 
equipment Indeed, it is easy to 
envisage that though they could 
meet the manpower bill, the costs 
of maintaining even the present 
level of operations will rise bo- 
yond their resources. The problem 
of external credit is, of course, tire 
limiting factor. 

The British military advisory 
and training t ram are d o in g an 
admirable job and one that is 
much appreciated by their hosts, 
but help in terms of logistics and, 
particularly, ammunition is now 
also needed. 

To deny this assistance would 
seriously jeopardise all the 
achievements of the British Gov- 
ernment in 1979-80 and the 
immense progress made sub- 
sequently under Mr Mugabe’s 
leadership

Sudeten expulsion 

From Dr Harry Hodtfelder 
Sir, To say, as you did in your 
obituary for Dr J. W. Bruegel 
(November 20), that tire Germans 
of Chechoslovakia were treated 

“with indierriiriiTMte SUSpttiOD 
and hostility by the re-established 
Czech regime” in 1945 is an 
under s tatemen t 
Would it not be more correct to 
call tire brutal and indiscriniinate 
expulsion of three million Sudeten 
German wen, women and chil- 
dren, who were deprived of virtu- 
ally all their belongings and of 
whose number some 250,000 per- 
ished in the process, by its proper 
name, ie^ genocide? 

It was most unfortunate that Dr 
Bruegel and his small group of 
followers gave unconditional sup- 
port to Dr Bents during the war, 
because this helped Bernes to 
deceive the British and United 
States governments about the 
scale and the inhuman aspects of 
his expulsion {dans. 

He pointed out time and again 
that his measures were merely 
directed against the Nazi d ement? 
among the Germans of Czecho- 
slovakia and even had the support 
of some democratic Sudeten Ger- 
mans. 

As a result of tins tire efforts of 
Wenzel Jaksch, the leader of the 
democratic Sudeten Germans in 
exile, to draw tire attention of 
world opinion to the monstrous 


crime against humanity which 
Benes was preparing, with Stalin’s 
support, were frustrated and his 
protests went unheard. 

Yours faithfully,

Prison contrasts 

From Mr Marek Garztedd 
Sir, I read with interest (Obituary, 
November 17) that the Nazi 
criminal, Erik Koch, died a peace- 
ful death in a Polish prison in a 
cell “lined with books bought with 
money sent from abroad”. 

Your readers may be interested 
to learn that many Solidarity 
activists have been imprisoned in 
the same Barezeweo gaol as Koch, 
except that they were beaten, 
locked in punishment cells with- 
out arieqimte food. For months 
not only were books withheld 
from them but also the right to 
receive correspondence from their 
families 

It would appear.therefore, that 
the communist authorities of the 
Polish People’s Republic feel 
more sympathy with former Nazis 
than with the workers of their own 
State. 

Yours sincerely, 

MAREK GARZTECKl Director,

Appealing to youth 

From Mr Mike Hars/dn 
Sir, Few young political activists 
are recruited by any of the parties 
on the basis of slick advertising 
techniques, contrary to the im- 
pression in your Spectrum article 
of November 18. Tnese are aimed 
at the wider audience of young 
voters rather than the potential 
members. 

The conscious effort by Alliance 
by-election managers at West 
Derbyshire, Newcastle - under - 
Lyme, and most recently in 
Knowsley to treat young voters 
with the seriousness their predica- 
ment demands was rewarded in 
votes of around 42 per cent. 


considerably higher than the mea- 
the Alliance achieves in 


gre ratings) 
the same age range in national 
opinion polling. 

Id contrast, the evidence from 
actual voting tends to prove that 


“Red Wedge” concerts and the 
like are counter-productive and 
reinforce a natural apathy towards 
any politician of any political 
party offering youth a credible 
package of policies. 

The only emphasis is one of 
“change” and “voting for change”. 
Hence, the by-election success by 
Liberals and the large majorities 
enjoyed by Labour amongst 1 8-24 
year-old voters in national polls. 

The interesting questions, 
which research by The Times itself 
has supported, are why young 
people are so apathetic towards au 

and P Shc*taris , o? whirt? percep- 
tions of the different parties 
influence young voters where the 
reality is strikingly different. 

Yours sincerely, 

MIKE HARSKIN (Prospective 
Liberal candidate, Brent South),

Practice nurses 

From Miss C. Martin 
Sir, With reference to the report, 
“Lives at risk as untrained nurse 
made smear errors” (November 6, 
later editions) I would like to add 
some comments. 

Practice nurses undoubtedly 
need education for their specific 
role in the surgery/health centre. 
Educational opportunities are 
available. 

Unfortunately, while secretar- 
ial /receptionist staff are specifi- 
cally named as being able to apply 
for some funding for training 
under the NHS General Medical 
Services Statements of fires and 
allowances (section 52.9), practice 
nurses are noL 

Their only claim for financial 
allowance may be either for health 
authority-approved courses or fin- 
courses attended with their 
employing general practitioner. 

While not underestimating the 
need for joint educational initia- 
tives, there needs to be a clarifica- 
tion of these statements with 
specific refere n ce to practice 
nurses. 

Yours faithfully, 

C. MARTIN (Chairman,

Future of N Ireland 

From Mr Michael Toner 
Sir, I suppose that those of us with 
Irish and Gaelic roots ought to 
sympathise with A T. Q. Stewart’s 
anguish (feature, November 15) 
over the “tyranny” being imposed 
on the Unionists of Northern 
Ireland. 

We had nearly 50 years, after all, 
in which to explore the frustra- 
tions of living under a government 
which ignored the norms of 
democracy as a matter of routine. 
Perhaps we understand the cur- 
rent miseries of the Unionists 
better than they imagine. Yet it is 
they who now hold the key which 
might enable both communities in 
the province to escape their 
sectarian wretchedness. 

The powers now held by the 
secretariat at Maryfield are ca- 
pable at any time ofbeing returned 
to the people, provided only that 
the Unionists can bring them- 
selves to deal with their feOow 
citizens as necessary participants 
in a common venture. 

Isn’t that what the restoration of 
democracy ought to mean? Or do 
all the attacks on the Anglo-Irish 
Agreement merely reflect a 
hanker ing for the return of Union- 
ist triumphalism? 

Yours faithfully, 

MICHAEL TONER,

BBC managing 
art of change 


From the Deputy Director-General 
af the BBC 

Sir, Your leader (November 20) 
referred to today's broadcasting 
debate being about the manage- 
ment of change, an ait in which 
British institutions — par- 
liamentarians as well as broad- 
casters — still have much to learn. 

In the last year the BBC has 
negoti at ed a reduction in its 
permanent staff of some 2,000. 
There have been no strikes — there 
has been no disruption to produc- 
tion of radio or television pro- 
grammes. 

Many services, formerly pro- 
vided within the BBC, are now 
provided by the outside market. 
The doors are being opened to 
independent producers. Regional 
broadcasting in England has been 
completely reorganized. The 
L ang b am headquarters has been 
emptied in six months and is for 
sale. 

The commercial activities of the 
BBC have been restructured and 
executives recruited from in- 
dustry. Super Channel, the sat- 
ellite service to Europe, is about to 
be launched with the active sup- 
port and encouragement of the 
BBC but without any capital 
investment The Domesday discs, 
which embrace new video disc 
technology, win be launched next 
week. 

In short, we fed the BBC knows 
a little about the necessity and art 
of managing change. Broadcasters 
inside and outside this country ask 
me to talk about it I wonder why! 
Yours faithfully,

Slice of wild life 


From Mr LyeU W. Fairlie 
Sir, I read with interest Miss 
Crawford Poole's recipes for deal- 
ing with pheasants in last 
Saturday’s Times (November 8) 
but was surprised at her opening 
remarks, namely, “Many a pheas- 
ant one meets these days has such 
a slender acquaintance with the 
wild that its lifestyle is closer to 
poultry than game”. 

I am not aware that any 
pheasants are bred in this country 
on an intensive basis purely for 
the table and indeed the ex-shoot 
price, at around £3 per brace, 
would make it totally uneconomic 
for a game farmer to produce them 
for this purpose. 

Pheasants are normally release d 
to the wild during the summer, 
and up to 50 per cent will be shot 
during the coming season. This is 
a slightly higher percentage than 
would have been the case pre-war, 
but your readers might wish to 
know that until the latter part of 
the last century pheasants were a 
relatively rare occurrence in our 
countryside and it was only with 
the development of the modem 
shotgun and the commencement 
of rearing on a large scale that they 
became plentiful. 

In conclusion, it would seem to 
me that pheasants today are just as 
accustomed to the wild as they 
were in the days of our great 
grandfathers. 

Yours faithfully,

Royal rats 

From Mr Iain Thomber 
Sir, In the event of the San- 
dringham rat-catchers failing to 
rid the royal park of its unwelcome 
visitors by conventional methods, 
as “Fourth Leader” (November 
15) implies might well be the case, 
then may I be permitted to draw to 
their notice two other means of 
expulsion which were known to 
their contemporaries in the early 
royal courts of Scotland? 

Firstly, by establishing a herd af 
goats in the vicinity of the 
problem. Rats detest goats, at any 
rate they do not infest or even 
appear in a house where one is; 
doubtless the strong smell of the 
goat is too strong even for them. A 
number of goats wandering at 
random through the royal bushes 
might well induce Mr Rat to move 
off and perhaps even discourage 
the initial perpetrators of the 
trouble. 

Secondly, by the recitation ex 
tempore of an incantation of 
expulsion. Rhyming and satire 
were in vogue against rats in 
Scotland and also in Ireland of 
okl; reference is made to some 
such proceeding in Shakespeare 
even. In January, 1853, the Rev- 
erend Dr Todd read a paper on 
this subject to the Irish Academy 
and introduced the tale of 
Seanchan, chief poet of Ireland, 
who pronounced such a rhyme. 
Yours faithfully,

Taking advice 

from the Leader of Arm District 
Council 

Sir, If foe use of external manage- 
ment consultants (John Bunerml, 
November 8) is the solution to 
economies in the running of shire 
comity and, indeed, shire district 
councils, lira asa councillor would 
be ample. 

Reality is somewhat different It 
is not the task of councillors to 
supervise departments. Tbefr duty 

is to determine policy, to set 
budgets, and to review perfor- 
mance. To achieve this needs 
determined leadership and politi- 
cal will ra the part of members. It 
is vital to have dear objectives set 
out by a policy group for the 


period of office of the council and 
to see that chief officers under- 
stand these objectives. 

My authority has reduced its 
man power from 780 to 680 since 
1979. We are contracting out as 
many services as possible, hope- 
fully anticipating Government 
legislation. We have saved 
£300,000 by contracting out foe 
refuse-collection service - in- 
house it cost us £1 million. We 
have slimmed our support and 
service operational costs by 30 per 
cent, reallocating the money to 
extra services, and overall we are 
spending 3 per cent less in real 
terms.than four years ago. 

We have set up free-standing 
quasi-commercial support groups 
for technical and office services. 


Departments may use the private 
sector if these groups are not 
competitive. They only survive, 
like any other enterprise, by 
making a profit. The results are 
first-class. 

We have certainly used consul- 
tants on many occasions, tut with 
discretion and the awareness that 
one may merely get a confirma- 
tion of the status quo if the right 
brief is not set Our success can 
perhaps be measured in part by 
the number of other authorities 
who seek our advice and are using 
us as consultants. 

Yours faithfully, 

GRETA M. BROWN, Leader, 
Arun District Council, 

Members' Room, Council Offices, 
Littiehampton, West Sussex. 


ON THIS DAY 


NOVEMBER 24 1917 


This operation was the breaching 
of the Hindenburg line by the 3rd 
Army on November 20. British 
tanks had been, tried out at Arne 
in 1916. bat this was the first mass 
attack, with more than 300 

medium tanks. The impetus was 
later lost through heavy rain and 
the strength of the German 
counter-attack. 


GREAT BRITISH 
VICTORY. 


BYNG STRIKES ON 
THE RIGHT. 


FIVE-MILE ADVANCE. 


HENDENBUKG LINE 
BROKEN. 


A BATTLE OF TANKS. 


a000 PRISONERS. 

... The outstanding feature of the 
main operation has, of course, been 
the brilliant share borne in the 
success by foe Tanks. From the 
moment when they went forward 
at daybreak on November 20, 
terrifying the enemy infantry and 
breaking a way through succ es s i ve 
belts of wire for our men to follow, 
they have always been in foe 
forefront of foe advance. They 
have not only cleaned out trenches 
and strong points with their ma- 
chine-guns, but have thrust into 
defended villages and occupied and 
held them, and have even charged 
and taken batteries of heavy guns. 

The air was so thick in the semi- 
darkness of early dawn that only 
those who actually took part in the 
attack could see what was happen- 
ing, but from men who were in it I 
hear that the spectacle, as the lines 
of Tanks went forward, with the 
Pnmimnwlnig yiwwnil'a flagship in 
advance, was magnificent. "It 
looked," said one informant, “just 
like a ceremonial parade.” How it 
looked to the enemy we can only 
conjecture from the way the enemy 
ran. 

Like aD operations nowadays, 
this had been carefully rehearsed in 
advance, and the infantry pressed 
on in worm-like waves immediate- 
ly behind and with foe Tanks, and 
went through with ease what five 
minutes before had been 
inpenetrable barriers of standing 
wire, and they did it almost 
without casualties. It is a fact that 
the aggregate casualties in the first 
advance across the Hmdenburg 
f.iTM> in three neighbouring battal- 
ions of which I know was a total of 
five men wounded. 

One of the points where the 
enemy dofonro was strongest was 
Lateau Wood, which, besides ma- 
chine-guns, was held by batteries 
of field guns and 5.9 ’b. A Tank does 
not mind machine-guns, but field 
guns and SB’s are different. In this 
case, however, a Tank deliberately 
charged a battery of 5-9's. butting 
its way through between two guns, 
then turning down the line and 
killing or scattering the crews, so 
that the battery was silenced and 
captured. With other Tanks it then 
picketed a wood and held it till 
infantry came in. 

Twelve Tanks went into 
Marcoing, each with a designated 
point to take and hold, and it is 
believed that every one of the 12 
reached its post At the bridge at 
Masnieres I tokl in an earlier 
message how the first Tank went 
overboard Apparently, however, it 
merely went through the bridge not 
being strong enough to support iL 
The water, fortunately, was not 
sufficiently deep to submerge the 
whole machine, and the crew 
crawled out through the manhole. 
The Tank lies there now, protrud- 
ing above the water. In the village 
of Ribecourt the Germans consid- 
erately bolted, leaving uneaten 
breakfasts behind, which the Tank 
crew ate. 

TANKS AS STRONG POINTS 
Some of the Tanks engaged were 
veterans of many fights, but there 
were also some which were in 
action for the first time, and all did 
very well. It was the first appear- 
ance on the battlefield of the Tank 
which went alone into the village of 
Cantaing before the cavalry got 
there. Some Tanks broke down 
from mechanical difficulties, but 


where they did so most of them 
were enabled to do useful work as 
stationary strong points, for a 
Tank with its machine-gun makes 
better redoubt than does a 
Ger man concrete blockhouse. 
Some were knocked out by enemy 
fire, at point blank range, of a 
battery of field guns. 

The casualties, however, were 
not heavy, and it is in accord with 
the fine traditions of the other 
Services that these should have 
been largely among the officers. 
When any difficulty arose requir- 
ing someone to go outside, it was 
always the officers who went and 
offered themselves as targets to the 
enemy snipers. . . 


Compulsive viewing? 

From Mr Michael R. Hopkins 
Sir, Over five years ago 1 decided 
to live without a television and 
since that time, twice a year, the 
licence authority have sent me a 
letter asking why I do not have a li- 
cence. 

Initially I duly returned foe 
form, advising that I do not 
possess a set, and then grew tired 
of what I felt was harassment and 
didn't feel it incumbent upon one 
to report io perpetuity to such an 
authority. 

This year the situation has 
become ridiculous: I am now 
getting a personal visit by two 
people from the licence authority, 
one in Fiebruary followed by a 
letter in April* and another per- 
sonal visit just yesterday. 

Your sincerely, 

M. HOPKINS.

The world’s 14 Orthodox churches have edged 
closer towards the holding of an Orthodox 
ecumenical council - the nra since the great 
schism 1.100 years ago - after reaching 
unanim ous agreement this month on im- 
portant issues of discipline and policy. 

The need to provide coordinated answers to 
new questions posed by the Orthodox clergy 
and laity, as well as by growing inter-dmrch 
relations, prompted an initiative by the 
Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, 
which has primacy of honour, for a Grand 
Council of the Orthodox Churches as a sequel 
to the ecumenical synods of the first 
milleniiim after ChrisL 

The Orthodox recognize only the first seven 
of the 20 ecumenical councils. The eighth 
council which confirmed the schism in 869. 
can be ratified as such only by the next council 

Representatives from the 14 Orthodox 
patriarchates and autocephalous churches 
have so far held three preparatory rounds to 
consider essential issues and formulate coni' 
mon positions which the grand council would 
be invited to ratify without much deliberation. 

At their last meeting in Cbambesy, near 
Geneva, the Orthodox representatives set new 
criteria for fasting, defined policy on the 
dialogue for Christian unity and ecumenical 


relations, and outlined the Orthodox view on 
world peace, race relations and human rights. 

They agreed, for instance, that each church 
would be free to set its own rales on fisting 
within the limits established by earlier 
ecumenical councils. The Russian Church 
opposed revision probably because of its 
diffi culty in communicating with the faithful 
by means other than the pulpit. 

The Orthodox churches reaffirmed their 
determination to pursue their dialogue with 
other Christian denominations, as well as 
within the World Council of Churches, .but 
condemned the ordination erf women as well 
as proselytism, for long the main points erf 
friction with the Western churches. 

Other essential issues to be tackled at the 
next two pre-synodal conferences indude the 
Orthodox diaspora, the criteria fin church 
autonomy and the order of precedence of the 
Orthodox churches. 

The Chambesy meeting was attended by 
representatives from the ancient patriarchates 
of Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch 
(Syria), and Jerusalem; the patriarchates , of 
Moscow, Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria; and 
the autocephalous churches of Georgia; Cy- 
prus, Greece, Poland, Czechoslovakia and 
Finland. Together they have a fallowing of 
about 1 50 million people.

Sir William Hildred. CB, 
QBE, FRSA, who sprat the 
firsi half of his long and 
distinguished carter as a crvfl 
se r v ant in Whitehall, and the 

second as director-general of 

the International Air Trans- 
port Association (IATA) dar- 
ing its formative years, died 
on November 2) at the age Of 
93. 

William Perdval Hfidred - 
known as Efick to lus friends - 
was born bn Joly 13, 1893, and 
educated at the Boulevard 
School, Hull, and Sheffield 
University where be read 
Economics. AT 21 he enlisted 
in the First Battalion of die 
York and Tancaster Regi- 
ment with whk* he served m 
France and at Salonika until 
invalided home in 1917. 

After convalescence, be en- 
tered the dvfl service in 191$ 
and joined the Treasury the 
following year. He was ap- 
pointed a finance officer of the 
Empire Marketing Board in 
1926, among other things 
administering grants market- 
ing research and development, 
in which he made quite a 
name for himself 

From there, in 1934* he was 
appointed head of the special 
measures branch of the Minis- 
try of Agriculture and Fisher- 
ies, to deal with agricultural 
fll brid ies and mgrirMing pmh- 

Iprag In 1935, he was made 

deputy general manager of the 
export credit guarantee de- 
partment, whictUnoughi him 
into the international field of 
finance and commerce. 

With this experience - and a 
sound, cautious, hat also in- 
novative, Yorkshire ap- 
proach, in March, 1938, he 
becamedeptdy director-gener- 
al of civil aviation under Sir 
Francis Sht-lmFrrtin^ whom 
he succeeded in 1942. 


He bad been previously 
been seconded from the Air 
Ministry, where he was sail m 
193$, to the Ministry of 

Aircraft Production and post-, 
ed to Montreal to oversee the 
bnfld-up . of RAF Ferry 

foTYimand. 

p awning bade to the Air 
Ministry ,m 1942, be was 
closely concerned with the 
BrabazoiT Committee, en- 
gaged in recommending the 
specifications of new .pos t^ 
War British transport aircraft 
and in the discussions which 
fed to the Chicago Civil 
Aviation Conference of No- 
vember-December 1944. In 
February, 1945, he was a 
member erf the British delega- 
tion to the Anglo-American 
Qvfl Aviation Conference in 
Bermuda, which resulted in 
the Bermuda AmeemenL 

At the Air Ministry before 
the war he had been associated 

with the arudua} IATA (then 
the. Inter national Air Traffic 
Association) formed in 191 9 
in afaodation with 'European 
airlines. This went into cold 
storage dining the War but 
was resuscitated, in a wider 
form, at a meeting of airline 
representatives in one of the 
thousand bedrooms of the 
Stevens Hotel during the 1944 
Chicago Conference. 

This led to a formal meeting 
in Havana of what had now 
become the International Air 
Transport Association, in 
April, 1945, at which Hildred 
was elected the first director- 
general by the unanimous 
vote of the 40 founder airlines. 

Tire new IATA emerged as a 
voluntary, non-exclusive, 

non-political asso c ia ti on of 
tire scheduled airfares of stales 
eligible to join tire Interna- 
tional CLvO Aviation Organi- 
zation (ICAO), and formally 


incorporanou ^ 

Parliament; both ICAO and W 
IATA being based in 
Montreal 

Between 1944 and 1966. 
Hildred steered IATA with 
skill and determination along 
a course made tmbuteatby 
tire often conflicting tfltercas 
of whai grew from 40 to 301 
airlines of more than 50 
nations. , . 

Through the years, he estab- 
lished himself as a skilful 
negotiator, a sound adminis- 
trator and as eioqaent speak- 
cr, wrap pi ng bard decisions in 
honeyed words. He created for 
IATA a manageable executive 
committee of 18 members on 
which he was. For two decades, p 
wefl supported by his great 
friend. Major J. R. McCrindle, 
latterly IATA's arbiter on 
enforcements. 

The establishment, under 

HOdrcd, of standard tickets. 
fragg a g* checks and air 
werghbiHs, and an IATA re- 
stricted articles code of more 
than 2.000 items, achieved 
world-wide agreement. Ail 
this wax administered through 
three traffic con fe rences which 
between them covered the 
world. 

The fact that all these 
complex issues were carried 
forward with relative smooth- 
ness and general agreement 
was a tribute to HfldretT s 
diplomacy and hard work. 

He retired in 1966 and went 
to fiveai Frensbam, in Surrey, 
where he indulged his leisure 
pursuits of cycling, music and m \ 
carpentry. r 

In 1920, he married Con- 
stance Mary Chappell MB, 

ChB. who dred last year. He is 
survived by two sons and a 
daughter. | 


MR ANWAR ZAKI NUSSEIBEH 


Mr Anwar Zalri Nosseibeh, 
perhaps the most distin- 
guished Palestinian of his 
generation, who upheld the 
moderate Palestinian cause in 
Israel, and who was also for a 
lime a Jordanian cabinet min- 
ister and Jordanian ambassa- 
dor in London, died in 
Jerusalem on November 2L 
He was 73. 

Born in 1913 into one of 
Jerusalem’s fearimg MmHm 
families, which for more than 
six hari been titular 

guardians of the Church of the 
Holy Sepulchre, he was edu- 
cated first at the Government 
Arab College in Jerusalem, 
when its principal was the 
renowned Ahmed Sameh al- 
KJiafidL 

In 1929 he was the first 
Palestinian. Arab to be sent to 
an English pnbfic school: tire 
Perse School at Cambridge. 
From there he went to 
Queens’ College, Cambridge, 
where he was captain of tire 
tennis team. He also took a 
degree in law and became a 
member of Gray’s Inn. 

Returning to Palestine he 
worked for the British Manda- 
tory Government, starting as a 


then moving to Jaffa, hi 194S 
he was sent to London to work 
in the Arab Office, but two 
years later, when hostilities 
broke out between Jews and 
Arabs in Palestine, he was 
appointed secretary of tire 
Arab National Committee 
loyal to Hay Aminal-Hussemi, 
Mufti of Jerusalem. 


A leading organizer of tire 
Arab defence of Jerusalem in 
1948, Nosseibeh suffered a 
wound which necessitated 
amputation of a leg below the 
knee. This disability did not, 
however, noticeably cramp his 
style in tire years ahead. 

When the war ended in an 
uneasy trace be was made 
secretary of the Egyptian- 
backed “Government of All 
Palestine” in Gaza. But a year 
later, when Jordan took con- 
trol of the West Bank, he 
returned to Jerusalem and 
gave his allegiance to tire 
Hashemite Kingdom. . 

He served in the Jordanian 
parliament and senate, and 
held a number of cabinet 
posts, indoding education and 
defence. lit the latter capacity 
he played an important part in 
expanding and re-equipping 
the Jordanian aimed forces in 
the mid-1950s. 

In 1961 he was appointed 
governor of Jerusalem. When, 
after serving for abonf a year, 
he was dismissed because of a 
difference of opinion with tire 
government, there woe dem- 
onstrations of protest in tire 


he served as Jordanian ambas- 
sador in London, where he 
dated tiie Palestinian case in 
reasoned and convincing 
terms. He also arranged a 
successful state visit to Britain 
by King Hussein. 

‘ After tire Six-Day War, 
when tire West Bank came 
under Israeli occupation, he 


PROF FRANCIS HELLIER 


Professor Frauds Heftier, 
OBE, who died on November 
19, at the age of S2, was one of 
the leading dermatologists of 
his day. Besides a long and 
busy career at Leeds Infirmary 
he also did useful war work in 
his field. 

Rands Findlay Heftier was 
bom on June 30, 1904, and 
educated at Moorlands 
School, Leeds; Oundle; and 
Caius College, Cambridge, 
where he tome firsts in both 
parts of the Natural Sciences 
Tripos. Instead of going to 
London, as might have been 
more fashionable, he went to 
Leeds InfirxzKuy to complete 
his Flirt trail t raining . 

Then be spent a period at 
the Brompton Hospital 
London, but returned to Leeds 
where he was senior medical 
resident officer and medical 
tutor. He is gratefully remem- 
bered by a generation ofLeeds 
gradua t es who passed through 
his hanri-B 

At this period he fell under 
the influence of : Professor 
John Ingram, who was bond- 
ing up the dermatological 
department .at Leeds. He 
opted for that speciality him- 
sd£ and studied further -at 
Guy’s, London, and with tire 
great dermatologist, Paiitrier, 
at Strasbourg. • 

In 1940 be was ajxxnxited 
dermatologist to western 
Command, with the rank of 
lieutenant-coloneL Through- 
out the war scabies was a 
scourge of troops in the field, 
and Heftier did a great deal 
through his centre at Ragiey 
Haft, to cure soldiers who 
otherwise might well have had 
to be demobilized. 

After D-Day he went to 
Normandy and remained with 
2 1st Army Group until the 
end of foe war, playing a 
considerable part in keeping 
units in combat condition. 
This was no easy task. Penicil- 
lin was scarce. Supplies were 
earmarked for serious casual- 
ties and none could be spared 
for the ravages of Am diseases 
which were damaging morale. 

. Commandeering a batch of 
out-of-date penicillin which 


was about to be destroyed. 
Heftier orated a pre parati on 
which could be used externally 
to treat the impetigo and 
sycosis which were taking 
their toft. This initiative pro- 
duced dramatic results, and 
men who would have had to 
be sent home were able to get 
back into battle within two or 
three days. 

After the war be went back 
to Leeds where, in 1959, he 
became head of tire dermatol- 
ogy department. Soon after- 
wards be was given a personal 
chair. At Leeds he established 
a reputation principally in two 
fields- He was an authority on 
industrial dermatitis, and a 
noted expert on the histopa- 
thology of the skin. 

He was a past president of 
the British Association of 
Dermatology and of the Der- 
matological Section of tire 
Royal Society of Medicine, 
and be was active on foe 
Yorkshire Regional Hospital 
Board. With Goldsmith he co- 
wrote the second edition of 
Recent Advances in 
Dermatology 

He retried in 1969, but 
continued to visit the skin 
dqmtmeiitat Leeds, examin- 
ing slides and contributing to 
discussion on the pathology of 
various conditions He was 
also seeing private patients 
until sboruy before his death. 
He was always in demand as 
an expert medical witness at 
tribunals, .and it was while in 
Manchester for a court session 
that he died. 

Heltier was a clinical der- 
matologist of the old school 
To the very end he retained 
his vigorous intellect He was 
a voluminous reader and had 
acquired a wide knowledge in 
sutgects other than his own. 
He liked conversation, and 
could talk to most people 
about 'most tilings. He was 
also a keen sportsman and. 
continued to may golt 

He married, in 1936, Do- 
reen Denny, a leading soprano 
with the D’Oyiy Carte compa- 
ny. She died m 1974. 

He is survived by a son and 

adaugbier. 


: returned to his modest family 
t home in Jerusalem. Though 
i he declined, like other Arab 
1 lawyers, to appear in Israeli 
: courts, be continued to act as 
, . legal adviser to foe Anglican 
[ bishop. He also initiated a 
series of secret meetings be- 
tween representatives of Israel 
. and Jordan, in foe hope of 
! finding a solution to the 
l problem of the West Bank. 

Over foe next decade he i 
, became increasingly disill u- l 
. stoned by what he saw as King 
[ Hussein's lade of commitment 
, to the Palestinian cause. As a 
result be moved closer to the 
PLO, though be always op- 
[ posed violence. Probably be 
‘ and Yasser Arafat met secret- 
: ly, bat no overt meeting 
between them occurred. 

In 1979 he became chair- 
man of tire East Jerusalem 
District Electric Company, 
which was a symbol of Jorda- 
nian presence is foe city. But 
the symbolism has taken an 
unfortunate twist because the 
company is now on foe verge 
of bankruptcy 
In a recent interview 
Nosseibeh made this com- 
ment on his careen “I have the 


late or too early in ail my 
political endeavours.” His 
death has drawn eloquent 
tributes to him from Arabs 
and Jews, the latter including 
Teddy Koftek, mayor of Jeru- 
salem. 

Nusseibeh is survived by 
his wife, Nuzha, and by their 
four sons and two daughters.

Vulcan laser success 
for Rutherford team 

■ By Pearce Wrigbt, Sdewre Edito* .' 

Major advances in laser a- peratare ins fraction oTasectn 
search, with important app- by more than Ten nuUion d 


search, with important app- 
lications in areas as diverse as 
cbemicaJ synthesis, surgery, 
microchip manufactore and bid- 
logical probes, have been over- 
shadowed by the controversy of 
, Sar Wars technology. 

' The mention of X-ray lasers 
raises ibe piaure of tbe device 
being developed for the Ameri- 
can military at the Lawrence 
Livermore Laboratory, in 
California. It involves a way of 
focusing the energy from a 
nuclear explosive to .create a 
beam weapon to be based on a 
platform in space for destroying 
missiles. 

But there is a different way of 
generating usefiJ X-ray laser 
beams. It come in what is 
described as “an important 
breakthrough in' laser physics'', 
by the annual report of the 
Science and Engineering Re- 
search Council;. 

The devefopruem was ach- 
ieved at the Rutherford Apple- 
ton Laboratory, near Oxford, 
done in collaboration with re- 
search teams from Hull and 
Belfast universities, and Im- 
perial Coil«c London. • 

Tbe advance depended on 
using a very jjowerftd . laser, 
called Vuican. in the flra pdace. 
but that machine, which de- 
pends on stimulating a material 
containing neodymium, pro- 
duces a traditional font) of laser 
beam of intense light. 

However foie scientists have' 

perfected a way of obtaining si* 
laser beams from tbe aquip-: 
mem. The beams arc focused on 


peratare in a fraction ofa second 
■ by more tharr Ten million dOr 
. grees centigrade. . ■_ 

- When the target is a fibre of 
carbon, seven microns (a mil- 
lionth of a metre) in diameter 
and just over .one centimetre 
long, it vaporises. In an instant 
before it disperses, aTOttaanio* 
second (a nanosecond is one 
. billionth of a second) pulse of 
pure X-ray is entined from the 
carbon while - it is in a momen- 
tary state as plasma. • 

In biological research, foe 

pulse of X-ray provides a probe 
to look at, the microscopic 
structures inside plant and ani- 
mal cells, that , cannot be seen 
any other way. 

The fHta are placed on a shoe 
that is coated,, with an X-ray 
sensitive material; No -staining 
or other preparations of the cells 
arc needed.. Although foe burst 
of X-ray gives a lethal dose of 
radiation to foe . cells, die 
appearance of foe living speci- 
men is- recorded, with unprece- 
dented resolution because foerc 
is no time for any change- m 
morphology to take place-. - 

, After , the exposure, an image 
. is- obtained on .foe slide with a 
resolution better than one hunr 
drcd nanometres, which may 
fote be- examined at high mag- 
nification with a microscope. / 


conjectured but- for which there 
iras been no. direct evidence 
until now. - . ' • ‘

RAF helicopter plucks 28 crew to 


Rescue revives 
demands for 
sinking inquiry 


mjTL 


for book on M15 


British marine investigators 
(lew to Ireland yesterday to 
discover why the crew of the 
Kowloon Bridge had to be 
rescued in high seas off Cork. 
Twenty-eight people were 
winched to safety in darkness 
and force II winds from the 
iron ore carrier by RAF Sea 

King helicopters. 

The 54,000-ton Kowloon 
Bridge, registered in Hop 
Kong, is a aster ship to the 
Derbyshire, which sank 
mysteriously in toe Pacific m 


1700 null LU v n»» v* -r* — — 

As the Kowloon Bridge 
wallowed near the Fastnet 
Rock yesterday with her 
160,000-ton cargo, campaign- 
ers for a public inquiry into toe 
Derbyshire suggested similar- 


two British-built ships. 

The crew of a third ship in 
the same Swan Hunter dass, 
toe Tyne Bridge, had to be 
rescued in the North Sea. 

Yesterday’s rescue began 
after two helicopters had flown 
from RAF Brawdy in Wales to 
Cork airport in preparation for 
the possible rescae of the aew 
of a Spanish fishing vesse l late 
on Saturday night They wore 
working with an RAF Nimrod, 
helping toe Irish authorities, 
which hare no helicopters with 
a night flight capacity. 

In less than two hours the 
helicopters, working above 20- 
foot waves, lifted oat 25 crew, 
two shipping company of- 
ficials and an Irish surveyor. 

Flight Lieutenant Tony 
Geare said: “There were fierce 
thunderstorms and the mods 
initially were gnsting at 60 
knots. Our choppers took 14 
each off toe tanker, bat luckily 
there was no panic on board. 
One iff my winchmen brake a 
hand daring toe operation.”

terday officials left London, 
a gain on behalf of the Hong 
Kong authorities. 

A government report on the 
Derbyshire this year sng- v 
gested that more “consul- \ 


given” to the design of a vital * 
intersection of main parts of 1 
toe hulL 

. Mr Roger Stott, Labour's 
transport spokesman, said: 

“All the sister ships have 
suffered serious structural 
difficulties and we argued 
there was a strong case for a 
full public inquiry. I received 
the reply just last Tuesday Night flight Flying Officer Andy Crawford (left); Sergeant 
that the Department of Trans- Lieutenant Tony Geare; and Sergeant David 

port felt tome was no need to 
bold an inquiry. Within half* 
aa-hoar of receiving that let- 
ter, I beard that the Kowloon 
Bridge had pat into Bantry 
Bay with serious structural 
problems.” 

Senior officials of toe Na- 
tional Union of Seamen, and 
Nmnast, toe union of marine 
officers, said they would also 
push for an inquiry. The NUS 
said four iff toe six ships had 
suffered cracks across, the 
deck in (rout of the bridge. 

Mr Alex Marsh, joint 
managing director iff Swan 
Hunter, said: **We don't know «£&[£•£ 
what tbe details are yet and we *“ rrT "■ ” 
have no comment to make 
There was no comment from 
Zodiac Maritime Agencies, 
which ran the Kowloon Bridge. 


Two killed in cliff fall 


A teenage boy and girl 
plunged to their deaths from 
cliffs at Penally, near Tenby, 
in West Wales yesterday. 

Their bodies, roped to- 
gether, were recovered from 
the sea by the crew of a Sea 
King rescue helicopter from 
RAF Chivenor m North 
Devon. 


The crew of the Tenby 
lifeboat had been unable to 
reach the pair because of 
rough sea conditions. The boy 
and girl, in their late teens, are 
thought to have fallen while 
trying to climb the cliffs near 
the Penally Army ranges. 

They had not been identi- 
fied last night

During Ins trip to Britain,' 
Mr Wright is also understood 
to have visited iris son. Al- 
though Mr Pincher would not 
confirm it. The Trmaimdep. 
anwk that Lord Rothschild 
telephoned him and arired if 
be would Skc to meet some- 
one who wanted to expose 
MI5 traitors. . 

When the two men met, Mr 

Wright was nervous. Ife said 
his M15 pension was only 
£2.000 a year and he des- 
perately needed £5,000 to

Mr Pincher went to Tasma- 
nia in October 1980 and spent 
two weeks with him. He said 
the former MI5 man revealed 
to hkn an “Aladdin’s cave” of 
secret information. 

Mr Pincher said yesterday: 
*T toM Wright he could re- 
ceive no money until a con- 
tract had been sagoed when he 
would get his half-share of the

clique in the armed forces is 
widely rumoured to have been 
behind die plan. 

Neither Mrs Aquino nor 
General Ramos directly 
lmimri Mr Entile to the un- 
usual movement late Saturday 
night of “six or seven 
truckloads” of heavily-armed 
civilians to the ' defence 
ministry. 

Two other truckloads of 
armed plain dothed men later 
went to the house of a former 
pro-Marcos member of par- 
liament where plans were 
discussed to reconvene the 
dissolved National Assembly 
•and install Mr Emile as Prime 
Minis ter. 

The assembly had pro-: 
claimed Mr Marcos winner of 
the February election, but one 
month after a civilian backed , 
mili tary revolt installed Mis 
Aquino in power, it was 
abolished. Mrs Aquino said 
most ministers who attended 
the emergency cabinet session 
had resigned arid the remain- 
ing resignations were expected

Even though Sir Robert had 
read tire book, he wrote to Mr 
Armstrong, of Sdgwick & 
Jackson, in March 1981, force 
days before publication. To ask 
for; two copies to he sent to 
hint so that Mis Margaret 
Thatcher could he in a pos- 
ition to make a statement in 
the House. ' 

Sir Robert wrote in his 
tetter “The request is not 
made with a vfew to seeking to 
prevent or delay pubfcation

shall not do sQi”.. 

Sir Micbad Havers, toe

rided against serving an

Japanese 

massacre 

revealed 


Tokyo (Reuter) - Japanese 
troops massacred more' than 
400 villagers on an Indonesian 
ishmddurmg toe Second 
World War, and their com- 
mander later falsified his re- 
port to avoid war crime 
charges, according to toe 
mass-circulation daily. Asaki 
ShimbtuL. 

The paper said that a village 
chief on Babar island killed a 
Japanese civilian attached to 
the navy and two other Japa- 
nese after an argument in 
October 1944. 

Japanese occupation troops 
ih^n killed or captured 100 of 
about 400 villagers. The rest 
. surrendered but were toot to 
death. 

The paper said that Mr 
Tomio Taketomi, aged 68, a 
student of war history from 
Honami, in southern Japan, 
had obtained an original and 
two falsified reports. 

It quoted the unidentified 
commander, now aged 65, as 
saying that the final repost, 
designed for presentation to 
the Dutch Army, had helped 
those involved to escape 
punishment as war criminals.

Nature notes 


In the south of Eng la n d, and 
in Ireland, there are now more 
female chaffinches than males. 
Among British chaffinches, the 
females are more in cline d to 
move south in winter, and 
among immigrants they tend to 
go further west. They are olive- 
brown binds, whereas the males 
have a pink breast and a blue 
crown. 

On wooded roadsides, there 
are often a few willow tits 
among the flocks of blue and 
great tits. They have a repeated 
rasping call which helps to 
distinguish them Grom the very 
similar marsh tits. Nothatches 
also travel along with the tit 
flocks, usually staying high in 
the trees; they have begun their 
quick, whistling song again. 

Dry leaves still ding to many 
trees in the oak woods; in the 
sunshine they have a distinct 
pink or orange tinge. The last 
maple leaves are a brilliant waxy 
yellow; last elm leaves in the 
hedgerows are a blend of pale 
yellow and pale green. Many 
bramble bushes show a few 
bright scarlet leaves. Herb-rob- 
ert and yarrow are still in flower.

GNP under 
a cloud 
as car 
sales slump 

Fln»rMaxwdl Newton 
New York 

The fourth quarter has not 
began sospirirasly. The first 
of the dements, that will malre 
op its GNP was the October 
personal consumption figure 
released oa Thursday . 

The collapse of car sales 
after the frenzy of 23 per cent 
financing in August and. 
Septan her, meant that per* 
sonal spending dropped by a 
sadden 2 per cent to a level , 
that, if continned, wfll mean no 
increase in personal consump- 
tion spending in the fourth 
q nailer. 

As personal spending in the 
third quarter provided more 
than the whole increase in real 
GNP, there is the prospect 
that the props w3B be polled 
out from under economic 
growth in the current quarter. 

The previous quarter’s 23 
per cent real growth, in GNP 
was mostly the Rtdt tfaiti- 
fictaUy boosted car sales and a

Chrysler is already talking of

American consumers are 
wonderfully keen spenders bat 
even , their appetite has been 
somewhat sated after Augnst 
ami September when they

cansmaption- 

Many analysts believe that 
sooner or later the dollar 
devaluation against the OECD 
countries (the carrency has not 
been devalued against the 
other 70 per cent of American 
foreign trade) will produce 
better exports' and lower im- 
ports. • 

However, the agreement be- 
tween the Federal reserve and 
the West German and Japa- 
nese central banks to maintain 
narrow hands, within which 
those cnnendes wfll flnctnate 
against the dollar, has tamed 
oat to be an excuse for the 
Japanese to devalue and for 
the mark to be provided with a 
very definite ceiling of 50 
cents. 

Consequently, since the 
October low, foe index of the 
dollar against- the leading 

currencies has risen 3 per cent, 
thus revers in g foe . downtrend 
of the dollar *nd imparting 
another deflationary twist to 
the American economic 
experience. 

The bond market began to 
fed better about things last 
week, with foe result that both

issues in the recent $29 bflEon

have risen respectably above

Factories output 

is recovering, 
says CBI inquiry 

By David Smith, Economics Cotresposdent 


Prospects for manufac- 
turing output are brightening, 
according to the results of the 
Confederation of British In- 
dustry’s latest monthly trends 
inquiry. 

However, the employers’ 
organization fears that stron- 
ger economic growth will be 
accompanied by Tiigher infla- 
tion and a widening balance of 
payments deficit. 

The CBTs November mon- 
thly trends inquiry and its new 
quarterly economic forecast 
will be published today. 

Of the 1,561 firms ques- 
tioned in the trends inquiry, 
21 per cent regard their order 
books as above normal, com- 
pared with 16 per cent last 


One worry for the Chan- 
cellor. however, m that the rate 
of industry price increases is 
expected to accelerate, with a 
greater proportionof firms (24 
per cent) expecting to lift their 
prices over the next four 
months. 

This ism line with the new 
quarterly economic forecast 
from the CBL - The pound's 
weakness — its trade weighted 
average is expected to fall by 
another 8 per cent by the end 
of 1987 — is -forecast to push 
inflation substantially higher

slackening in the growth of

On balance, companies still 
have fewer orders than they 
would like, with 30 per cent 
regarding order books as be- 
low nor mal. But the negative 
balance has dropped from 23 
per cent last month to 9 per 
cent' this month. 

There has been a similar 
drop, from 22 to 10 per cent, 
in the negative balance on 
export orders. 

"This is the best outcome 
since February and suggests

Geoffrey Mokahy: Malting Woolwortb assets work harder 

Woolworth seeks 
ADR dealings 


WoobrorA Holdings has 
applied to foe New York Stock 
Exchange for permission to 
have its shares quoted in foe 
form of American depository 
receipts. 

Dealings are expected to 
start hi the new year. In the 
next few days, Mr Geoffrey 
Mnlcahy, chief executive, and 
fellow director, Mr Nigel 
Whittaker, are meeting a num- 
ber of fond managers and 
brokers in New York and 
Chicago. 

Many observers in the City 
are interp re ting Woolworfo's 
derision to apply for ADR 
dealings as another attempt at 
shoring mi its defences. 

This year, the group fought 
off an un wanted £1S bflhon 
bid for its arch-rival, Dixons, 
after an acrimonios and bit- 
terly contested battle. 

Mr Mnlcahy and Mr Whit- 
taker last .week mat the num- 
ber of brokers and fond 
managers, inducting MAG, 
who backed than in the fight 
with Dixons, in order to keep 
them op to date with events. 

Woolworth has good reason 
to keep its institutional back- 
ers sweet. On Friday, 
Woolworfo's share price 
closed at 655p. It has been as 
low as 620p in foe past few 
weeks. The final Dixons offer 
was worth 900p in cash. 

There is a growing feeling in 
the City that the new year 
could see another bid for 
Woolworth — possibly after 
foe figures are announced in 
March.

under increasing pressure to 
reveal whether Mr Ivan 
Boesky the disgraced Ameri- 
can arbitrageur, channelled 
illegal deals through Cam- 
brian and General Securities— 
the British investment trust 
formerly managed and 
chaired by Mr Boesky. 

Mr Robin Cook, Labour 
MP for Livingston, will today 
demand a Commons state- 
ment on the British implica- 
tions of the Boesky affhir. Last 
week Mr Paul Channon, the 
Secretary of State for Trade 
and Industry, declined to give 
Mr Cook an assurance that Mr 
Boesky *s insider dealing did 
not extend to the London 
market. 

Meanwhile the Cambrian 
accounts for the year to 
September 1985 reveal that 
two of the investment trusts' 
biggest shareholdings were in 
companies on which Mr 
Boesky had received inside 
information from Mr Denis 
Levine. 

The accounts show that 
Cambrian held £35.8 million 
worth of shares in General 
Foods — its largest angle 
holding. In addition, it held 
£12 million of shares in Boise 
Cascade. 

The Securities and Ex- 
change Commission has said 
that between February. 1985 
and February. 1986. Mr 
Boesky dealt in the shares of 
companies — including Gen- 
eral Foods and Boise — in 
response to inside informa- 
tion passed to him by Levine. 


Moreover Cambrian is 
named as one of tbe defen- 
dants in a SI 00 million US 
class action bought by a 
former shareholder in General 
Foods who claims to have lost 
money as a result of Mr 
Bolshy’s activities in foe 
company’s shares. 

The Cambrian board said 
on Friday foal it is co- 
operating with a subpoeana 
served on it by foe SEC, 
demanding trading records 
going back to 1978. 

The board said also that it 
bad been advised it has a 
complete defence to foe 
American class action. It 
added that it was "not aware" 
that Mr Boesky used Cam- 
brian for insider dealiog. 

Cambrian has appointed S 
O Warburg, the merchant 
bank.“io advise them on foe 
alternatives available to 
achieve the maximum avail- 
able for shareholders." It has 
also foe Boesky management 
company and is looking for 
new investment advisors. 

The Board made no state- 
ment on foe current suspen- 
sion of its share price. 

A move to wind up Cum- 
brian could come from foe 
SEC which now holds Mr 
Boesky's interest in it as pari 
payment of foe $100 million 
penalty imposed on him. 

The SEC is understood to be 
appointing British merchant 
bankers to advise it

The money machine that 
ploughed up Wall Street 


From Bailey Morris, Washington 


Wall Street has a love-hate 
relationship with Dread, 
Burnham, Lambert Inc. the 
.American investment banking 
house at the centre of the 
insider trading storm. 

It is both the most resented 
house on Wall Street and the 
most admired. 

Even venerable firms which 
regard Drexel as the brash 
company which invented 
“junk" bonds - high risk, high 
yield paper - acknowledge 
that this one firm and its 
principal money officer. Mr 
Mike Milken, have revolu- 
tionized corporate finance. 

It is the “Milken money 
machine." built on his un- 
canny ability to produce 
investment-grade paper which 
convened equity into low- 
grade bonds (gilts), that 
launched the Drexel re- 
volution. 

Mr John Gutfreund. chair- 
man of Salomon Brothers, the 
investment banker.credited 
Drexel (or more accurately Mr 
Milken) with building an en- 
tirely new business — an 


investment banking syndicate 
which exists outside the tra- 
ditional banking industry. 

In the process, the pnvately- 
heid firm has become one of 
the most profitable on Wall 
Street through aggressive fi- 
nancings which helped a new 
generation of “raiders" re- 
shape corporate America. In 
1985, Drexel put aside an 
estimated $600 million (£422 
million) of its revenues of $15 
billion for bonuses. 

"Today, thanks to Drexel, 
Burnham, no company is 
immune from raids and no 
management can afford to 
ignore the short-term value of 
iis shares," said Mr Andrew 
Sigler, of Champion Inter- 
national Corporation. 

Even “the establishment" 
on Wail Street has been forced 
to march to Drexel's tune. 

Goldman Sachs is a good 
example. Earlier this year, the 
i 14-year-old company an- 
nounced a big expansion, 
increasing the number of part- 
ners and entering new lines of 
business to keep pace with the 
trends started by Drexel. 


To the public, it appears 
that Drexel. Burnham sud- 
denly buret on the scene from 
nowhere in the 1980s, corner- 
ing the markets on leveraged 
buyouts and hostile takeovers. 

But it began building the 
“risk" business much earlier, 
after the 1975 deregulation 

Drexel. Firestone & Co, a 
fixture on Philadelphia's 
"main line." was acquired by 
Burnham & Co in 1973. It was 
oue of the faltering old firms 
that Mr I W “Tubby" Bum- 
ham, who founded his own 
company in 1935, was buying 
at bargain prices. In the pro- 
cess, he acquired Mr Milken. 

According to Business 
Week, Mr Milken has been 
fascinated by the inefficiency 
of the corporate bond market 

Mr Milken's research show- 
ed him that the old standards 
of measuring credit worthi- 
ness were wrong. He b^an to 
play with an old idea — that a 
company with cash flow and 
bright prospects was credit- 
worthy even if its book value 
was low. 


Mr Milken' produced vari- 
ous paper products based on 
this principle and worked out 
how to make a market in 
them. 

By 1981, corporations and 
Wall Street's new tycoons had 
discovered they could borrow 
more cheaply with fewer 
strings attached by selling, 
"junk” bonds. Low-rated 
companies have raised an 
estimated $48 billion through 
junk bonds and Drexel has 
handled about two-thirds of 
ihetotaL 

By 1983, the company had 
moved into leveraged buy- 
outs, handling such deals as 
Turner Broadcasting’s $1.5 
billion buyout of MGM-UA 
Entertainment In 1984, Dre- 
xel rewrote the merger rules by 
lining up $2 billion to finance 
Mr T Boone Pickens' hostile 
bid for Gulf CXI Corporation. 

By this tune, concerned 
about its poor, image, the 
company launched an exten- 
sive public relations campaign 
both to sell “junk" bonds and 
put itself in a better light

of its research department, 
said: “Retail warehousing as a 
concept has had a mazing suc- 
cess in Britain over a very 
short time." 

Bat there has bees a radical 
change from the days when 
retail warehouses were situ- 
ated in co n verted cinemas in 
town centres or old tafldings 
on industrial estates. 

“The retail park is now part 
of the future of retail

said. “More and more sites are

Free-standing warehouses 

in poor locations seem doomed 
to become secondary prop- 
erties in the sector as retail 
parks and more sophisticated 
versions of the genre emerge. 

Healey & Baker says tint 
investors must be forward- 
thinking abont retailing and 
socio-economic developments 
and selective about location if 
they are to take advantage of 
outstanding growth opp- 
ortanitites. 

But when looking at prop- 
erty yields it is the indostrial 
sector which is showing en- 
couraging signs, with a (1.1 per 

cent drop in average yield in 
the three months from Angnst 
to November this year, accord- 
ing to HiDier Parker, the 
surveyor. 

In Loudon average fantas- 
trial yields fell below 10 per 
cent for the first time smee 
raid-1984, with yields in the 
South-east also faffing as 
investors return to a market 
where supply is limited and 
demand strong. 

The City of London and 
parts of the West End office 
market are showing static 
yields, against the trend of 
rising average office yields. 
Suburban London office yields 
are 8£ per cent.

REUTER M'ONITOR - THE INFORMATION SERVICE FOR YOUR MARKETS ' 


from the Mafia to back sheet 
protection rackets insider 
trading is very difficult to 
detect and once, detected, 
even banter to prove. 

And like the Mafi a, it is 
becoming increasingly appar- 
ent that its more sophis- 
ticated - manifestations will 
escape detection unless a 

“canary” can be found to do a 

little ringing. 

One benefit of foe new 

computerized share d e a ling 

system is that h is much 
ea s i e r to monitor trans- 
actions, identify suspicious 
share price movements and 
follow them up with the 
broker concerned. 

The computer system, 
compliance officers, newly 
appointed Government in- 
spectors and routine taping of 
telephone conversations will 
all help to deter the casual 
users of inside information — 
those who have from time to 
time taken advantage of a fox 
system because they could 
escape without detection. 

These measures, unfortu- 
nately, will not stop the 
determined criminal of the 
sort being discovered in the 
United States. Too many 
investigations here and in the 
US do not unearth more than 


Cayman Islands or some 
other tax haven. 

Recent revelations from 
New .York are beginning to 
show foe size of the problem 
in the US. But in Britain it is 
impossible even to guess the 
extent of insider trading. 

Everyone, it appears, is 
aware that it is going on. It 
has been a criminal offence 
since 1980, punishable by 
fine or imprisonment Yet so 
for there have been only five 
convictions out of foe nine 
cases which have been as for 
as the courts. 

Suspicious share {nice 
movements are most often 
cited as the clearest evidence 
of insider trading activities. 
Most research has been con- 
ducted in the US, which has 
more stringent regulations on 
the conduct of insiders. 

Certain insiders, as defined 
by the US Securities and 
Exchange Commission, are 
req uired to report their trans- 
actions in the company’s 
securities and these trans- 
actions are published every 
month. 

In Britain, possible ev- 
idence of inricW trading prior 
to takeover bids was docu- 
mented as long ago as 1976 
by Professor Michael Firth in 
Share Prices and Mergers 
(Saxon House 1976). 

As a result of foe merger 



mania of the preseat bull 
market and the insider trad- 
ing scandals in New York, 
some of the more spectacular 
price movements have at- 
tracted public attention but 
little systematic research has 
been published. 

The staff of foo technical 
directorate at the Institute of 
Chartered Accountants in 


um.icu a jncuHiiiiflij ur 

yestigation in an attempt to 
identify the size of the prob- 
lem. 

Rather than selecting par- 
ticular bids, the investigators 
have chosen to analyse the 
share price movements of foe 
targets of all first-time bids 
for listed companies an- 
nounced last April. 

Nineteen cases were in- 
vestigaied, including two bids 
of more t han £1 billion and 
eight under £50 million. The 
accompanying charts show 
the . individual share . price 
movements of three of the 
companies in the sample and . 
the aggregate movement for 
the 30 days before foe bid. 

The analysis shows that in 
15 of the 19 cases, there were 
noticeable price movements 
in the lOdays before foe ann- 
ouncement 

The average movement for 
the whole sample was nearly 
15 per cent above the market. 
On foe announcement of foe 
bid, there were farther signifi- 
cant movements averaging 
30 per cent 

The finding s provide some 
evidence of exceptional activ- 
ity in the shares of some 
companies prior to a bid 
announcement However, the 
reseaidiers point out that this 
in itself does not prove either 
the existence or the extent of 
insider dealing. • 


Share jnice analysis takes 
no account of foe volatility of 
individual shares. Further; 
foe bidder himself may be 
accumulating shares before 
launching his bid up to his 
allowed 4.9 per cent This in 
itself wffl dnve up the price 
but such tactics will also alert 
the market 

. The presence of a forge 


lators who will deal on the 
bade ofrumoms, pushing up 
the price ahead of the bid. 

But the Technical Direc- 
torate rogues that share price 
analysis may have some lim- 
ited use in polking insider 
dealing. 

Abnormal share price 
movements may, for exam- 
ple, signal the need for in- 1 
vestigatkm. But what is 
needed is a more precise 
definition than is presently , 
-available of what constitutes 
an abnormal share price 
movement Outside the fake- 
over and merger arena, wine 
share price movements are 
tess marked, insider dealing 
will be even harder to identify 

Many observers believe 
that the true insider deal 
takes place early on, without 
disturbing the share price, ft 
is done via an offshore com- 
pany which protects the ideo- 
tity of foe dealer. 

To crack down on foe 
serious operator, greater in- 
ternational ..co-operation is 
needed, not just between foe 
the United Stales and Britain 
but also with the . offshore 
havens. 

Only then will the authori- 
ties . be able to begin to 
penetrate the web of insider 
deals.

USM REVIEW 


Two companies reported this 
week on their first full year’s 
trading since their flotation on 
the USM in 1985 ™ 
Abbey crest, a jewellery manu- 
facturer and TMD V a media, 
advertising specialist 

Share prices of both com- 
panies have been dull since 
their launch but good results 
from both offer the prospect of 
a better performance in the 
coming year. 

Jewellery stocks do not 
usually enjoy expensive rat- 


ings and apart from the very 
Steady but unexciting engage- 
ment ring market, much of the 
rest of the trade is heavily 
dependent on the discre- 
tionary Christmas market. 

Companies involved at the 
tower end of the market have 
had a volatile record, but 
Abbeycresl .is proving the 
.exception to therute. 

Abbeycresl originally came 
to the market in April 1985 
and was founded to exploit the 
market for inexpensive gold 


shine on a dull rating 


COMMENT 


and sterling silver jewellery, 
mostly nine carat gpld neck- 
laces , bracelets and ear-rings. 

The company prides itself 
on its design flair and its 
ability to rum delected trends 
m the market place into 
suitable products in as little as 
six weeks. 

Abbeycresl announced pre- 
tax profits of £1.01 million for 
ibe year to August but is in the 
process of changing its year 
end to December and will 
therefore “be reporting again 


early next year. The 12-month 
period to December 1986 is 
expected 10 show pretax prof- 
its in the region of £1.25 
million, suggesting that it is 
noi over-dependent on Christ- 
mas unde. 

The company is hoping 10 
continue its 30 per cent com- 
pound growth in profits. The 
shares were originally placed 
-on an historic price/earnings 
ratio of 16.8 limes; expensive 
for a jewellery stock - even 
one with a good record. How-

crisis 

‘likely’ 

By David Smith 
Economics Correspondent 

The Baker-Mi yazawa pact 
to stabilize the yen-dollar 
exchange rate will collapse 
before the end of the winter, 
according to James Ca pel’s 
International Bond and Cur- 
rency' Review published today. 

The resulting foil for the 
dollar will have repercussions 
for sterling, James Cape! says, 
and a winter crisis for the 
pound is on the cards. 

The pact between Mr James 
Baker, the US Treasury Sec- 
retary, and Mr Kiichi Miy- 
azawa, the Japanese finance 
minister, to stabilize the yen- 
dollar rate around present 
levels will fafl because of the 
return of protectionist pres- 
sure in the US Congress, the 
review says. 

Faced with such pressure, 
and a Democrat majority in 
the Senate, the Administra- 
tion will be forced to revert to 
its policy of driving down the 
dollar to improve the deficit 
A cut in the US discount 
rate, perhaps before the end of 
the year, will send the dollar 
down, dragging the pound 
with it, James Cape! says. 

The pound is expected to 
bold present levels against the 
dollar but to foil by 10 per cent 
against the mark over the next 
12 months- The dollar is 
forecast to drop to DMI.85 
and 148 against the yen. 


The drug culture of 
City takeover bids 


The current wave of large-scale take- 
over bids has been written off more 
than once. The fall in share prices in 
spring and early summer suddenly 
made it harder to underwrite offers 
and a new mood was hailed. Likewise, 
the rash of references to the Monopo- 
lies Commission, which effectively 
stymied Elders-IXL’s attempt on 
Allied- Lyons and GECs late quest to 
buy Plessey, suggested the ride might 
abate. Now BTR’s onslaught on 
Pilkington has been tagged already as 
the last great bid battle of the current 
phase. 

Maybe. But the momentum of the 
City's addiction to takeover bids has 
become as entrenched as in 1 972-73, 
when the wave crashed on the beach 
of financial crisis. 

The corporate craving can be well 
illustrated in the Pilkington case. One 
likely bidder, the mining and materi- 
als group Rio Timo-Zinc, was identi- 
fied because it was deemed to need a 
big acquisition. RTZ has recently 
reduced its loan gearing and a leading 
City mining analyst reasoned that it 
had thereby become vulnerable to a 
bid itself unless it moved fast. In other 
words, if it did not use its assets to 
borrow up to the hilt, someone else 
could borrow from eager lenders to 
gain control of them. 

BTR's need was more subtle. It is, 
by most tests, a well managed and 
successful company. But the premium 
rating of its shares over others with 
such an apparently uninspiring mix- 
ture of businesses depends on the 
bonus of corporate activity. Buying 
other companies and cutting their 
overheads puts the cream on profits 
growth, providing the identifiable 
extra attraction it cannot claim for its 
existing businesses as a whole. BTR is 
now valued as one of Britain's top ten 
companies. But it is on a treadmill, 
needing to make ever larger ac- 
quisitions to retain its own image. 

Stock market history is littered with 
conglomerates with management 
philosophies whose share prices col- 
lapsed like a soufffe as soon as, for one 
reason or another, they ran out of 
takeover steam. Once the momentum 
is lost, it is hard to regain because the 
takeover currency has been devalued. 

Ideologues can be left to argue over 
the wealth created by the estimated 
£500 million spent in the past 12 
months on financial services supplied 
for the takeover addiction. But any- 
thing like that figure gives those who 
supply the services a powerful interest 
in keeping the habit going. 

The merchant banking group Mor- 
gan Grenfell, for instance, made £51 
million profit in the first half of 1 986, 
comfortably more than for the whole 
of 1984, chiefly due to its advisory and 
financing role in takeovers such as the 
controversial Guinness bid for Distill- 
ers. Even in 1985, Morgan Grenfell 
drew almost a third of its profits from 


corporate finance, compared with a 
seventh in 1981. And takeover activ- 
ity has replaced conventional capital- 
raising as the dominant element in 
corporate finance for leading mer- 
chant banks. 

Morgan shares got off to a bad start 
when they were floated in the sum- 
mer, mainly because of fears that the 
pace of takeovers might not be 
sustainable. Morgan bad a good share 
of bids in the £300-400 million range, 
it was argued, but needed more 
megabids to keep going. Fortunately, 
it is advising BTR. 

The takeover industry has become 
an important element in spreading 
overheads all round the City: for 
lawyers, for financial public relations 
to companies fearful of becoming 
victims; in generating business for 
stockbrokers and market-makers — 
and even for insider trading, the black 
market end of the industry. 

Much of the big profit comes in 
underwriting, where the merchant 
banks take substantial risks to earn 
their profits. 

Managers of pension and insurance 
funds and trusts are driven increas- 
ingly by the need for short-term 
performance in an increasingly 
competitive world. Even the more 
conservatively managed pension 
funds usually set aside a proportion to 
be managed for short-term perfor- 
mance. And that is most readily 
achieved through the premiums gen- 
erated by takeovers. 

In the end, however, the chain 
exists to serve the interests of the City 
institutions as shareholders. Unless 
Whitehall steps in on the back of 
public distaste, they will determine 
whether it continues on the present 
scale, pausing only when falling share 
prices threaten underwriting profits. 

The takeover culture depends on 
the big institutions' acceptance that it 
increases the overall value of then- 
holdings; that in the long run, the 
bidders will create more wealth than 
their victims, so that swapping one 
share for another yields more than a 
zero sum. 

Those higher returns might be 
earned in a different way: by pushing 
company managements to perform 
better and replacing them if they do 
not. That might also increase eco- 
nomic growth. But, in most cases, that 
alternative is not available. They can 
exercise only the power of their 
dominant shareholdings through the 
stock market and through the agency 
of the takeover bidders. Takeovers 
reflect the frustration of institutional 
shareholders. The City is unlikely to 
kick the takeover habit until the big 
shareholders can use their power 
directly in the boardroom.

Market set for imminent turn 
as yields edge towards 1 2% 


Gilts are in radioactive mode. 
They ended last week in a 
kind of smouldering heap, 
after a series of totally 
exhilarating - and con£ 
pletely terrifying - trading 
sessions. Who says thenew 
ma rket is tame? 

Futures trading tefls nan of 
the story. Before Big 
daily turnover was about 
10,000 contracts, or £500 
million. last Thursday saw a 
total of31,480 lots, worth 
£1.57 billion, traded. It is a 
new world indeed. 

The inter-dealer broker 
screens &Q to give the whale 
picture on prices. Prices are 
moving With terrifying rapid- 
ity. Market-makers mn«^ 
hedge their positions in fu- 
tures. Meanwhile, the market 
is struck, as it was last week, 
by a series of shocks which 
appears to alter completely 
the basis on which stocks 
have been evaluated. Not 
easy. 

A lew statistics convey part 
of the doomwatch flavour of 
the week. Early in November 
high coupon shots were 
yielding snghtly more than 11 



Speculation can 
prove the better 
part of valour 


Questioning -Sir Terence 
about the autumn stateme n t 
m general an d exchange rate 
policy in particular, commit- 
tee members were astonished 
to bear that no Trea su r y 
target, either implicit or ex- 
plicit, existed for tbe pound. 

They were not half as 
surprised as the. gilts w k ffr . 
Traders had qflren great com- 
fort in early November from 
the Chan cel lor s adamantine 
statement on television tha t 
current parities would be 
defended to the Hitdi 
through interest rates. 

“Oh, no,” groaned die 
traders, as they realized that 
another statement from the 
Chanc ell or was subject to the 


_______ c customary seasonal adjust- 

fff tochfgmmne^ ment process. Down went the 


the second week of this 
month returns had risen to 


currency and down went gifts. 
Worse was to come. The

up to 1 1.70 per cent Have the 
authorities invented a market 
which can do nothing but go 
down? 


The medium coupon area, 
which normally interests the 
foreign investor, was hit by 
similar devastation. Returns 
for tum-of-the-century stocks 
were a fraction under 11 per 
cent at the beginning 0 f the 
week. By mid-week the figure 
was nearing 11 J per cent A 
prominent stock like Ex- 
chequer 15 per cent 1997, 
which trades around the peak 
of the yield curve, was within 
a smidgen of 12 per cent 
yields. 

Part of the da mag** was 
attributable to remarks by Sir 
Terence Bums, Chief Eco- 
nomic Adviser, at the regular 
session of the Commons 
Treasury and Civil Service 
Committee. 


when the Prime Minister 
ruled (Hit early membership 
of the exchange rate mecha- 
nism of the European Mone- 
tary System (EMS). She also 
appeared to veto either the 
use of the interest rate 
weapon to defend sterling or 
intervention. 

Sterling promptly nose- 
dived through the 
floor for the currency of 68, 
dragging tire gflts market to 
unprecedented lows. At the 
long end some stocks are 25 
per cent off their highs for foe 
year. 

Yet in a curious way, the 
Prime Minister's statement' 
contained the seeds of pos- 
sible recovery for the market. 
The bullish argument is cer- 
tainly subtle, perhaps Tptiiw 
oos, and almost certainly' 
short-term. Bat a good case 
can be made lor buying the 


gflts market at these extraor- 
dinary yield peaks. 

Brave souls were plunging 
in fete fest.week and buying 
the high coupon stocks for 
income. Meanwhile, the trad- 
ers were switching longer, out 
of die safe 1993-95 areas and 
into the zones where real 
volatility can be found. 

With some good fortune, 
assuming foe currency stands 
up in the hope that this 
week's crop of data will be 
good, most notably tomor- 
row's October trade figures, 
there is a reasonable chance 
that the market will rebound 
from these levels. It is not 
quite a case of buying while 
stocks last; more a matter of 
deciding that speculation, in 
the shortterm, can prove the 
better part of valour. 

The Rome Minister's re- 
marks torpedoed market 
hopes of an early panacea to 
apprehensions about ram- 
pant credit growth, huge bal- 
ance of payments deficits and 

slumping sterling . This is 
what the EMS means for tbe 

Britain was opting not to 
become a fledgling member 
of the new German empire. 
But, by die same token, fear 
of an early poBcy-inspired 
rise in interest rates and a 
severe ti ghtening in. credit 
policy were also removed. 
These policy moves would 
form part of tbe.entry fee to 
EMS. 

The removal of these fee- 
ton from the generalized gflt 
market equation effectively 
leaves tbe market free to re- 
orient itself towards New 
York and perhaps otter 
world bond markets. A new 
flexibility returns to the mar- 
ket, provided all the other 
bits and pieces fit into place, 


It is remarkable what good 
things have been happening 
across the global village re- 
cently. The New York market 
pretty wen succumbed to a 
terminal stock overload after 
the Japanese refused to bid at 
the November Treasury auc- 
tions. Later, however, the 
Fed waded in with all kinds 
of help for the bond market 

A coupon pass was fol- 
lowed by substantial assis- 
tance through system repose. 
The market slowly recovered 
its prase. During the latest 
rally the long end has fallen 
' about 45 basis points in yield 
terms; returns have dectined 
from a peak of nearly 8 per 
cent to about 7.50 per cent 

The performance was help- 
ed fay broad hints from Mr 
Manud Johnson, tbe Fed’s 
vice-chairman, that extra 
scope existed for a discount 
rate cut A heavy hint to the 
market to miHgft it fntn 

action? Perhaps, but braid 
traders atilt reacted po- 
sitively. 

The Japanese market 
been firm and so have Ger- 
man bonds. In some respects

Good case can be

Frankfurt has turned in one 
of the most surprising perfor- 
mances. Prices have zipped 
ahead in the fece of continued 
Bundesbank in t ransience 
over easier credit policies. 

Yields have fallen from a 
recent peak of about 6.07 per

The latest stock offering from 
the Federal Government, 6Vz 


percent 1996, has strained to 
a premium of DM2 over the 


a premium of DM2 over the

As British yields near 12 
per cent, tbe level of protec- 
tion on offer ought to guar- 
antee adequate investor pro- 
tection. A turn in the market 
looks imminent. 

Conversely, if stocks fail to 
bounce and investors refuse 
to buy Ion yields at 11 per 
cent plus, then it is on to ever 
higher levels of return, with 
savers and borrowers still 
seeking an equflibrium area 
iff dialogue. And back to the

Before Lord Keith of Kinkel, 
Lord Tempteman, Lord Grif- 
fiths, Lord Mackay of 
Cfesbfem and Lord Goff of 
Chieveley 

[Speeches November 19] 

In deciding whether a case 
was a proper one fra service 
on a defendant out of the 

jurisdiction, the question to be 
asked was in which forum the 
case could most suitably and 
appropriately be tried for tbe 
interests of all the parties and 
for the ends of justice. 

The House of Lords so held 
in allowing an appeal by tbe 
plaintiffs, Spfliada Maritime 
Corporation, from the order 
of tbe Court of Appeal (Lord 
Justice Neill and Lord Justice 
Oliver) (The Times March 16, 
1985; [1985] 2 Lloyd's Rep 
1 16) reversing the decision of 
Mr Justice Staugbton on 
November 16, 1984. 

Mr Justice Staugbton had 
dismissed the application of 
the Canadian defendants, 
Cansulex Ltd, to set aside or 
stay tbe proceedings brought 
against them by the plaintiffs 
regarding damage caused to 
their vessel through the car- 
riage of the defendants’ cargo 
of wet sulphur. 

Mr Kenneth RoJtison, QC 
and Mr Nicholas Legh-Jones 
for the p laintiffs ; Mr Robert 
Alexander, QC and Mr Peter 
Goldsmith for the defendants. 


LORD TEMP LEMAN said 
that tbe solution of disputes 
about the relative merits of 


was AusSl.813,000 (profit ofl trial in England and trial 


AusS (.021.000 in 1984-85).

The offer will be 64p in cash fra, 
each Berkeley share, patting a; 
value of £15.6 million ron the 
Berkeley issued share capital. 
Clyde Petroleum says that it has ! 
sold to Ranger its entire holding 
of 6,132,844 Berkeley ordinary 
shares at 64p a share for £3.9 
million cash. As a result, with 
tbe consent of the Takeover 
Panel, the offer by Clyde for 
Berkeley has been withdrawn. 
The buyer of the Berkeley shares 
is Foothills, a wholly-owned

now bolds 14.516.143 shares 
(about 59.5 percent).

abroad was pre-eminently a 
matter fra tbe trial judge. 
Commercial Court judges 
were very experienced in such 
matters. In nearly every case 
evidence was on affidavit by 
witnesses of acknowledged 
probity. 

His Lordship hoped that in 
foture the judge would be 
allowed to study the evidence 
and refresh his memory of the 
speech of Lord Goff in the 
present case in the quiet of his 
room without expense to the 
parties; that be would not be 
referred to other decisions on 
other facts; and that sub- 
missions would be be mea- 
sured in hours and not days. 

An appeal should be rare 
and tbe appellate court should 
be slow to interfere. His 
Lordship agreed with Lord 
Goff that there were no 
grounds for interference in the 
present case. 

LORD GOFF said that in 
cases where jurisdiction had 
been founded as of right, that 
is, where in this country the 
defendant had been served 
with proceedings within the 


paper p m g r a mme is to be I jurisdiction, the defe nd a n t 
increased from $75 ariffion (£52 1 could now apply to the court 


million) to Si 50 million. Tbe 
expanded programme win. for 
the first time, include the issue 
of sterling commercial paper in 
denominations of £500,000 and 
£1 milli on. The company has 
announced an increase in its 
revolving credit facilities from 
$75 million to $140 million. The 
short-dated promissory notes 
will continue to be issued by 
Ladbroke Group Finance, a 
wholly-owned subsidiary by 
whom the issue is guaranteed.

to exercise its discretion to 
stay the proceedings on the 
groimd usually called forum 
non conveniens. 

That principle, long rec- 
ognized in Scots few, had only 
been recognized recently m 
England. Tbe classic state- 
ment was that of Lord 
Kinnear in Sim v Robinow 
((1892) 19 R 665, 668): 

“The plea can never be 
sustained unless the court is 
satisfied that there is some 
tribunal, having competent 
jurisdiction, in which the case 
may be tried more suitably for 
the interests of all the parties 
and for the ends of justice.” 

It was to be doubted 
whether the Latin tag forum 
non conveniens was apt to 
describe that principle. Fra 
the question was not one of 
convenience, bat of tbe 
suitability or the appropriale- 
■ ness of the jurisdiction. 

The Latin tag was so widely 
used it was probably sensible 
10 retain it, but it was most 
important not to allow it to 
mislead one into thinking that 
tbe question at issue was one 
of mere practical convenience. 

In the light of authoritative 
statements of the Scottish 
doctrine it was wiser to avoid 
use of “convenience” and to 
refer to the “ app ropriate” 
forum. 

The law could at present be 
summarised as follows: 

1 The basic principle was that 


than the English forum. 

In that way, proper regard 
was paid 10 the feet that 
jurisdiction had been founded 
in England as of right There 
was the further advantage 
that, on a subject where 
comity was of importance, it 
appeared that there would be a 
broad consensus among major 
common law jurisdictions. 

4 Since the question was 
whether there existed some 
other forum which was clearly 
more appropriate for the trial 
of the action, the court would 
look first to see what factors 
existed which pointed in the 
direction of another forum. 

It was desirable to adopt tbe 
expression of Lord Keith in 
The Abin Dover ([1984] AC 
398, 415) when he referred to 
the “natural forum" as being 
“that with which the action 
had the most real and substan- 
tial connection". 

So it was for connecting 
factors m that sense that the 
court had first to look; and 
those would include not only 
factors affecting convenience 
or expense (such as availabil- 
ity of witnesses), but also other 
factors such as the law govern- 
ing tbe relevant transaction 
and the places where tbe 
parties respectively resided or 
carried on business. 

5 If the court concluded at that 
stags that there was no other 
available forum which was 
dearly more appropriate for 
the trial of the action, it would 
ordinarily refuse a stay. 

6 If however, the court con- 
cluded at that stage that there 
was some other available fo- 
rum which prima fade was 
clearly more appropriate for 
the trial of the action, it would 
ordinarily grant a stay unless 
there were circumstances by 
reason of which justice re- 
quired that a stay should 
nevertheless not be granted. 

In that inquiry, the court 
would consider all the circum- 
stances, induding thosewhich 
went beyond those taken into 
account when considering 
connecting factors with other 
jurisdictions. One such factor 
could be the fact, if established 
objectively by cogent ev- 
idence, that the plaintiff 
would not obtain justice in the 
foreign jurisdiction. 

As to how the principle was 
applied m cases where the 
court exercised its dis- 
cretionary power under Order 
1 1 of the Rules of the Supreme 
Court, an apparent difference 
of view was to be found in the 
speeches of Lord Diplock and 
Lord Wilberforce in the Amin 
Rasheedcase ([1984] AC 50). 

The statement of Lord 
Wflberforce was the ap- 
plicable principle. It bore a 
marked resemblance to the 
principles applicable in forum 
non conveniens cases. 

It was inevitable that the 
question in both groups of 
cases was that expressed by 
Lord Kinnear in Sim v 
Robinow, namely, to identify 
the forum in which the case 
could be suitably tried for the 
interests of all the parties and 
for the ends of justice. 

Clearly, the mere fact that a 
plaintiff had a legitimate per- 
sonal or juridical advantage in 
proceedings in England could 
not be decisive: To give tbe 
plaintiff his advantage at the 
expense of the defendant was 
not consistent with the objec- 
tive approach inherent in 
Lord Kumear’s statement of 
principle. 

The underlying fun- 
damental principle remained: 
to consider where the case 
could be tried “suitably for the 
interests all the parties and the 
ends of justice”. For example, 
an English court would not, 
normally, hesitate to stay 
proceedings merely because a 
party would be deprived of 
higher damages here. 

But the underlying principle 
required that regard must be 
had to the interests of all the 
parlies and the ends of justice; 
and those considerations 
could lead to a different 
conclusion in other cases. 

Fra example, it would not 


normally be wrong to allow a 
plaintiff to keep the benefit of 
security obtained by 
commencing proceedings 
here, while at the same time 
granting a stay of proceedings 
in tiiis country to enable the 
action to proceed in the 
appropriate forum. 

Again, in relation to time 
bars, practical justice de- 
manded that, if the court 
considered that the plaintiff 
had acted reasonably in 
commencing proceedings in 
this country, and that, al- 
though it appeared that 
(putting on one side the lime 
bar point) the appropriate 
forum was elsewhere than 
England, the plaintiff did not 
act unreasonably in failing to 
commence proceedings (for 
example by issuing a protec- 
tive writ) in that jurisdiction 
within the limitation period 
applicable there, it would not 
be just to deprive the plaintiff 
of the benefit of having started 
proceedings here. 

The present case was a 
classic example of one where 
tbe appellate court had simply 
formed a different view of the 
weight to be given to the 
various factors, and was not 
therefore an appropriate case 
for interfering with the ex- 
ercise of the judge’s discretion. 

Lord Keith, Lord Griffiths 
and Lord Mackay agreed. 

Solicitors: Holman Fenwick 
& Willan; l.inklarers & Paines. 


a stay would only be granted 
on the ground of forum non 
conveniens where the court 
was satisfied that there was 
some other available forum, 
having competent jurisdic- 
tion, which was the appro- 
priate forum for the trial, that 
is, in which tbe case could be 
tried more suitably fra the 
interests of aD the parties and 
the ends of justice. 

2 In general the burden of 
proof rested on the defendant 
to persuade the court to 
exercise its discretion to grant 
a stay, although in respect of 
such matters raised to per- 
suade the court to exercise its 
discretion the burden would 
lie on the party asserting it 

Furthermore, if the court 
was satisfied that there was 
another available forum 
which was prima facie the 
appropriate forum the burden 
would then shift to the plain- 
tiff 10 show that there were 
■special circumstances by 
which justice required that the 
trial should nevertheless take 
place in England. 

3 The burden resting on the 
defendant was not just to 
show that England was not the 
natural or appropriate forum 
for the trial but to establish 
that there was another avail- 
able forum which was dearly 
or distinctly more appropriate

A year or so ago I attended an event 
billed as a “Jobfait" designed to bring 
together employers seeking staff and 
people seeking jobs. And from the 

numbere present h appeared to be a great 

success. 

As I strolled among the booths 
occupied by in vestment brokers, cater- 
ing firms and the like, I stum Wed upon a 
solitary figure wearing a den cal collar. 
My first thought was that he must be the 
chaplain to some captain of com merce. 
But when we got into conve rsation it 
turned out that he was in the recruitment 
business too, although admittedly his 
firm had been in business for a good 
many centuries longer than the others. 

If his appearance occasioned surprise, 
it is surely because the priesthood is 
regarded as different from other pro- 
fessions. It is much more than just a job 
with terms and conditions of service, etc. 
It is a vocation. Yet perhaps it is not so 
very different . . 

Recruitment and training are every bit 
as important for this as for other, 
professions, not to mention salaries and 
pensions. Two miSenia ago life was 
somewhat simpler. . . 

As with any profession, is it in- 
advisable to make any. long-term 
commitment until you have a dear idea

of the pros and cons? One needs to shake 
off, for example, the preconception that a 
priest is primarily a social worker, or that 


a rural parson has plenty of time on his 
hands for the study of butterflies. 

While there is certainly a social 
component and a study element in a 
priest's work, ins chief concern is the 
saving of souls. A strong religions 
commitment is, therefore, vitaL

What sort of people go into holy 
orders? At one time most churches 
restricted entry to the priesthood to the 
male of the species, but we live in 
changing times. The Church of England, 
for . instance, is agonizing over the 
problem of whether to appoint women

have already taken the derisio n to d o so. 

There is every reason to expect an 
increase in career opportunities for 
women at all levels in religious organiza- 
tions, although the prospect of a lady 
Archbishop of Canterbury still looks 
decidedly remote. 

On the other hand, age seems to be no 
barrier and I can name people who after 
spending several years in such diverse 
professions as computer programming, 
teaching and aoconntancy now wear dog 
collars. Maturity and experience of the 
world are counted as assets which can 
help greatly in understanding the needs 
and problems of one's parish oners. 

Good communication skills are essen- 
tial, although the ability to preach a 
three-hour sermon is mercifully -no 
longer required. Compassion and the 
ability to offer sound advice are also 
desirable qualities, particularly in iso- 
lated communities where counselling 
services may be practically non-existent. 

A would-be priest or minister needs 
also to be blessed with intelligence, as he 
will have to cope with a demanding 
course of training, and resilience, since 
his faith will be subjected to every kind 
of pressure in this modern age: It is not a 
career for the fainthearted. 

If you believe that the ministry is 
definitely for you, the first step is usually 
to approach your parish priest or local 
minister who can offer advice and will 
refer you to the appropriate person or 
authority. Alternatively, you can ap- 
proach the body which handles recruit- 
ment directly, which — in the case of the 
Anglican Church — is the Advisory 
Council for the Church’s Minhtry. 

You wiU be subjected to interviews 
and assessments to discover whether you 
have the right qualities for work of this 
nature. If everyone is satisfied, you are 
then recommended for a particular type 
of training; the length of which is usially 
dependent on age. 

For example, the Church of England 
would normally expect anyone under 30 
without a degree in Theology to take a 
three-year course of study, if you are in 
your 30s, a two-year full-time course is 
generally prescribed, although there may 
be the option of studying part-time for a 
longer period. 

More mature candidates for the 
ministry would normally undergo up to 
two years' training before being pre- 
sented for ordination. 

Once you have obtained the pre- 
scribed qualification, most churches will 
require you to serve an “apprenticeship” 
as a curate or assistant priest in a parish. 
Once you have passed this hurdle 


successfully, you can other continue 
with parish work or specialize in another 
area. ■ 

Chaplains, for instance, seem to be 
much in demand whether io the armed 
forces, prisons or education. A former 
cofigagite of mine with a background in 
education opted far the latter course by 
becoming a school chaplain in matters 
both spiritual and intellectual 

This deciscu has suited his tempera- 
ment and talents admirably. Others with 
a background in industry opt to become 
industrial chaplains either on a full-time 
baris or in addition to their parish duties. 

If you years for foreign dimes, there 
should be plenty of oppor&inities over- 
seas, since virtually all the churches 
operate world-wide. You might decide to 
enlist with a missionary society and 
follow in the footsteps of Noel Coward's 
Unde Harry, or minister to an expatriate 
community in some for off land — work 
which is every bit as challenging as 
dealing with a large inner city parish. 

Few priests have the luxury of a nine- 
to-five day.. Apart from Sunday work 
there is usually plenty to do in the 
evenings: meetings to attend, people to 
counsel, emergencies to deal wiih. An 
embassy chaplain once told me that at 
every social function he attended there 


Yon are net escaping 
from worldly matters 


was at least one person who took him 
aside to ask for advice. A priest, it seems, 
is always on calL 

This total commitment has implica- 
tions for the priest's family, if he has one. 
A vicar's wife often has to take on the 
role of unpaid assistant, answering 
telephone calls when her husband is out, 
dealing with callers, motivating women's 
groups within the parish, etc. Not every 
woman finds she is able to adapt easily to 
this role, especially if her husband has 
opted for the priesthood after years in 
some other profession. 

Joining the ministry is not a derison to 
be taken lightly, since it is not so roach a 
profession as a way of life. While the 
importance of the priesthood may have 
diminished with the increasing 
secularization of society, nevertheless 
the clergy are still looked upon as leaders 
within their respective communities. 

You are not escaping from woridy 
matters when you turn your collar 
round. You are seeking to convince the 
world of its need to change its ways. 
Candidates lacking personality or 
conviction should not apply.

RUGBY UNION 


Forward menace brings 
Newport victory after 
a walk on the wild side 


By David Hands . 
Kngoy Correspondent 


London Welsh 
Newport.. 


22 


.28 


The skies over Old Deer 
Park may not be quite so 

cloudy as they were last season 

or, indeed, earlier this season 
but London Welsh resources 
remain slimmer thgn of yore. 
Understandably they are 
peeved at the loss, yet again, of 
the Lpmensely promising 
back-row. forward, Russell, 
though not all their members 

agree with his compl aint 

(based on a video recording) 
to Moseley, opponents a fort- 
night ago, at the way be was 
injured. 

But you could not have 
wished for a more whole- 
hearted display from 
Saturday’s team in a fixture 
which, last season, attracted 
much adverse publicity when 
three players were sent off 
Newport, too, when they put 
their minds to it, responded 
with some attractive rugby 
and deserved — but only 
just — victory by two goals, a 
try, two penalty goals and two 
dropped goals to two goals,, a 
try and two penalties. 

Newport are a team of light 
and shade; they have- some 
fine footballers, notably 
Turner and Howells, and two 
useful wings. Yet they fre- 
quently prefer the forward 
rumble, with all the menace 
implicit in the song of the 


rame name from West Side 
Story. At the same time their 
with Batten a notable 
offender, tend to live in. their 
opponents’ pockets and, with 
tes t will in the world, no 
referee who is preoccupied 
vnth two knowledgeable sets 
of. f orwards can watch for 
offside behind him. 

For an hour Newport domi- 
nated the game: They riwmwd 
up in the lineout through 
Waters and Perry (Derek 
QumneU, a Welsh selector, 
was watching, and doubtless 
had his country’s problems at 
lode forward in mind), they 
put the Exiles'' scrum under 
pressure and won some decent 
loose balL Howells m at te two 
delightful breaks and Turner 
is- always a slippery handful, 
yet for the life of them 
Newport could .not string to- 
gether two telling passes and a 
desperate Welsh cover clung 
on with commendable 
tenacity. 

. The Welsh led 15-10 at the 
interval and. trailed only by a 
point going into the final, 
quarter. Their two tries both 
stemmed from lineout hail 
won by Rodliffe, the first 
scored by the. lock himself 
after excellent inter-passing by 
the forwards, the second by 
Ford after John Price, an 
interesting recruit from the 
Uxbridge club, was held up on 
the line. 

Newport sent Morgan 
barrelling over from a tapped 
penalty and Turner scissored 
with Jona than Caflard to give . 


his side the lead just after the 
intervaL 

The match was turned an its 
head when Llewellyn sud- 
denly began to win all the 
lineonts and the Welsh at- 
tacked from everywhere. 
Newport kept them oat, 
thanks to Turner’s use of the 
strong wind and, as so often 
happens, the side throwing 
everything into offence con- 
ceded -the try when Nigd 
Callard. nipped round an un- 
defended blind side and 
chipped for White, who 
chased and harried over 70 
metres for the try. 

Keating bad me final word 
but in a game that was so 
dose, Russell’s height at the 
lineout and sheer physical 
presence in the loose might 
have lipped the scales towards 
the Welsh, for. whom Cofyn 
Price passed 1 00 points for the 
season. 

Sadly Russell, having 
missed nearly all of last sea- 
son, is to see a specialist on 
Friday after an operation fora 
detached retina which, it has 
been alleged, was caused by a 
punch.

Biackheath Foster gets marching orders 

the pick 
of the pack 


By Gerald Davies 


While Leicester were pushing 
Moseley further down John 
Smith's merit table A and 
Waterloo were confirming then- 
status at the top of merit table B 
on Saturday, Black heath's 
remarkable 2 1 -9 defeat of 
Neath, leaders of the unofficial 
Welsh championship, . domi- 
nated the club results (David 
Hands writes). 

The Welsh are not always the 
best of travellers but Neath's 
record this season, even without 
Jonathan Davies and Thorbum, 
suggested they would have too 
much in hand for the dub whose 
record could best be described 
as patchy. But lan Anderson, the 
lock, scored two tries in the 
second half and- BJnr.lt heath, 
riding the wind, won by three 
goals and a penalty to. two 
penalties and a drop goaL 

Davies came on as a replace- 
ment for the injured Laity but 
his presence made no sig nifi ca nt 
difference to a team whose 
thoughts may have been on next 
Saturday's encounter with Bath. 
It is a victory for Biac kheath , 
whose third try came from 
Osbourne: to build on; they 
have, after all, awkward oppo- 
nents themselves next weekend 
in Coventry. 

Some of the gloss was re- 
moved from Leicester's 22-6 
win over Moseley by an injury 
to Tebbutt, their flanker, who 
has ligament trouble and most 
wear a plaster cast for the next 
week. But the Midland di- 
visional selectors must have 
been tearing their hair at the 
sight of Hare's touch kicking 
which, with that of Cusworth 
and Dodge, kept Moseley at hay 
and paved the way for two tries 
by Richards, both from lineouts. 
The selectors have asked Not- 
tingham to play Hodgldnsoo at 
full back rather than stand-off 
half in an attempt to clarify 
matters. 

Rosslyn Park's satisfaction ai 
scoring the only try of the match 
will have been muted after 
Aitchison kicked four penalties 
for Waterloo who won 12-6 at 
Blundellsands. Offiah, from the 
right wing, was the try-scorer 
and he had several other runs 
which went close; yet Waterloo 
maintain their 100 per cent 
merit table record 


Swansea

The wind, with a ‘ bitterly 
damp edge to it, blew from the 
Mumbles end. Clouds loomed, 
rain and hailstones threatened, 
it was not the kind of day to be 
out in for long. One Swansea 
player did not. Foster, having 
once been warned early in the 
second half was given his 
marching orders soon after- 
wards for kicking an opponent. 

Moriarty could consider him- 
self lucky to have stayed the lull 
distance: As a result of his 
attentions, Chris Mills bad to 
leave, the field early on in the 
-game to be replaced by Phil 
Williams at prop. Apart from 
these three incidents it was a 
clean game which Swansea, 
somehow gritting their teeth, 
won by two goals and a penalty 
to. four of Simon Smith’s 
penalties. . 

The , home team had their 
backs foUie wall in the first haK 
They bad the wind advantage 
and although they turned, 
around in foe lead, they had 


. surprisingly spent most of the 
time in defence. It was Rich- 
mond who had added a touch of 
colour. 

If the scrummage was an 
unsatisfactory affair, with too 
many of them dropped un- 
comfortably, they were swift 
elsewhere to get foe possession. 
Sole, Vyvyan and Kami ogham 
together had such a good first 
half that Swansea had very little 
room to manoeuvre. Cullen at 
scrum-halfhad a lovely game: so 
quick and sure in his passing. 
Smith, at the end of that service, 
varied his game at his ease. 

They were a wonderful pair to 
watch; England have such a 
choice in these positions now- 
adays. Williams and Clement, 
their opposite numbers, had 
their moments but, with eight of 
their regular players m issi n g, 
there was not the same consis- 
tent cohesion around them. 

Wyatt kicked a penalty and 
Smith had Indeed two ofhis own 
before Swansea, in an attempt to 
get a reasonable sccfre by half- 
time, got a couple of sudden 
tries. The first, after Taylor had 
forced his way through foe 
middle from Clement's reverse 
pass, went to Williams as be 


Marcus Rose, of Harlequins, who wiD be out for three weeks with a shoulder injury. Harle- 
quins also lost Harriman as their win over Cambridge University on Saturday took its toll 

Harlequins feel the 
scars of victory 


emerged from the maul dose to 
Richmond's line. 

The other came from a short 
penalty with Williams acting in 
the pivot role, dummying twice 
before giving the ball finally to 
Moriarty who sliced through on 
a diagonal run to the posts. 
Wyatt convened both of these. 

Smith added another penalty 
before half-time and kicked one 
more just after the interval. 
With foe wind in their favour 
and Swansea reduced to 14 men, 
Richmond, if they could play 
anything like the way they bad 
in the firet halL seemed destined 
to win. The home team how- 
ever, somehow stuck it out to 
leave Richmond to ponder why 
it was that such a chance to win 
on Welsh soil had been allowed 
to go astray.

Perhaps we are witnessing the 
death throes of the County 
Championship. Nevertheless, 
the way that Yorkshire .have 
played in recent years ’and 
especially, this winter, and on - 
. Saturday, lave significance in a 
broader context. 


• The other merit table B match 
was between Roundhay, who are 
languishing at the moment, and 
Northern, recently. promOtttotp 

the northern merit table (Mi- 
chael Stevenson writes). 

Roundhay won foe toss ana 
conceded wind advantage. They 
only trailed 3-0 at half-time, 
through Green’s pena lty, so 
Roundhay must have fenced 
their chances; but tries .by 
Hughes (2). foe second being 
converted by Green, saw North- 
ern safely home (13-9) despite a 
spirited rally by the losers that 
brought a try by Walker and a 
conversion and penalty by 
Brown. 


Their principle inspirations 
are the two Peters, 
Winterbottom and Buckton. 
Both believe that the ball should 
be kept alive and .the 
movement’s pace main tained. 
Against Durham, Buckton had 
moved to No &, to make room 
for Tipping, whose power and 
formidable workrate revitalized 
the Yorkshire pack but the back- 
row -functioned superbly as a 
unit and outplayed the Opposi- 
tion. Yorkshire’s victory and 
with h lheThoro-EMI Northern 
Group Championship, was by 
two grmts . four tries and three 
penalties to a goal and atry.- 


Just before half-time, Carling 
had gone off injured to be 
replaced by S -Havery (Gates- 
head FfelT) and Durham missed 
him sorely, competently, though 
his replacement performed. 
Adamson’s third penalty and a 
try by the ubiquitous Buckton 
put Yorkshire realistically out of 
reach before Bentley nut in two 
foundering tries. He then left the 
field injured to be replaced by M 
Waddington, also of Pdey, who 
himself scored at once. • 


Hackney’s glorious individual 
try for Durham followed. 
Harmes converted, but 
Yorkshire’s masterminds en- 
gineered foe peroratian, when 
Winterbottom made a try, deep 
- in injury-time, for Buckton.

Inspired by Tony Cook and 
Robert Mankee, Cora wall de- 
fied foe wind and wet to 
deservedly beat Gloucestershire 
6-0 and reach foe Thom EMI 
county championship semi- 
finals for the first time in 17- 
years. 

Cook and Mankee' controlled 
the fierce forward exchanges to 
emerge victorious through two 
penalties by Henderson and join 
Yorkshire, North Midlands and 
Middlesex in Friday’s draw. 

It was largely a good day for 
the south-west as Devon re- 
gained their status in the first 
division of their group with a 
13-9 win over Bncktegham- 
shire, although their celebra- 
tions woe tempered by having 
White, a lock forward, sent off 
for punching an opponent by 
Rev Parker, a refereeing chap- 
lain from Shropshire. . 

Somerset however were given 
a fright by Berkshire tefore 
Simmonds scored his second try 
in iqjury lime by breaking 
through three tackles on foe 
wing, to wrap up a 1 9-7 win and 
ensure that Somerset stay in the 
first division. 

The northern group matches 
were marked by stirring second 
half displays as Lancashire re- 
tied on a final try by Jeffrey to 
halt spirited Cmpbria 2l-tg, 
while Dunn and Marwick 
scored splendid tries for Nor- 
thamherbuHl as they came from 
behind to beat Cheshire 14-9. 

In the south division, two 
tries by Atidns on foe wing in an 
fight-minute burst emphasized 
Hampshire's superiority in ev- 
ery department as they crushed 
Sussex 304. 


Harlequins repulsed their sec- 
ond university challenge in a 
week when they beat Cambridge 
by two goals, two tries and a 
penalty goal at foe Stoop ground 
on Saturday. Injuries clouded 
the afternoon for both sides, 
already short of leading players. 

In the last five minutes Rose, 
the Harlequins full back, went 
off with a sprung left shoulder 
and may be out of action for 
three weeks. Harriman, their 
right wing, damaged an elbow at 
the same time. Earlier, 
Withyman, foe Cambridge No 8 
who had not played since the 
university matdbi in December., 
pulled a hamstring and was 
replaced by an Australian called 
David Livingstone. 

Withyman should be able to 
play against Steele-Bodger’s 
team on Wednesday. Four oth- 
ers whose skill and experience 
Cambridge can ill afford to be 
without — Thomas, Oti, Cush- 
ing and Heirod — are expected 
to return for foal game. 

Despite the score Cambridge 
defended well, and their for- 
wards were anything but out- 
played. Wainwnght, the boxing 
Blue, was the most ubiquitous 
man on the park. In the ring be 
must be as hard to pin down as 
Muhammad Ati once was. The 
backs made tittle impression. 


Playing downwind. Harle- 
quins scored 13 points in foe 
first half and would have scored 
more with better passing to foe 
wings. Rose appeared in the 
centre to score the first try and 
Davies zigzagged through for 
foe second, with Cambridge 
probably expecting the whistle 
for an apparent knock-on. 

Tries by Olver and Langbom 
at foe start of foe second half 
prevented any Cambridge re- 
vival. Langbom, taking time out 
from the second row, over- 
lapped on the left wing as to the 
manor bom. 

The re feree. Bob Jenkins, 
used to be a Wimbledon umpire 
and once had a row with John 
McEnroe. To be sure, there was 
plenty of talking on Saturday, 
but it was all harmless.

Oxford the likely lads 


By a Correspondent 


London Scottish 21 

Oxford University 3 


Oxford University lost their 
last game against first-class 
opposition before the Univer- 
sity match, but need not feel too 
downhearted. They have dis- 
played enough all-round talent 
this season to suggest that a 
second successive win over 
Cambridge is likely. 

London Scottish won by a 
goal three tries and- a penally 
goal to a penalty goal but were 
never in complete control 
against an Oxford side missing 
its two most influential for- 
wards. Coll MacDonald and foe 
captain, Simon Griffin, are both 
expected to play at Twick- 
enham, however. Griffin will 
lest his injured hip against the 
Oxford Old Boys on Saturday. 

With neither side making use 
of their fozeequaners it was a 
surprise to reach the interval 
with as many as 11 points on the

and foe nimble McKay scored 
cries for Scottish, Risman reply- 
ing with a penalty. 

Thankfully, both sides gave 
therr backs a chance to impress 
in foe second half. An exciting 


Oxford move ended with 
Du foie just foiling to gather 
Risman's pass as a try seemed 
certain, before Colin Campbell, 
a replacement for the injured 
Scottish wing. Batten, took 
Searte's neat pass to score in foe 
comer. An Irvine penalty wid- 
ened the margin to 12 points. 
Five minutes from time 
Macklin’s pick-up sent McKay 
over for bis second try.

ICE SKATING 


Fitness handicap 
may be Powell’s 
only shortcoming 


By John Hennessy 


A dark horse promises to add 
20 unexpected dimension to the 
British women's figure skating 
championship at Solihull from 
today until Wednesday. She is 
Rebecca Powen, aged 18, from 
Sheffield, who has followed her 
trainer. Carole Banlam, from 
Sheffield to. it so happens, 
Solihull for tuition. 

Miss Powell would not pre- 
sume to challenge Joanne Con- 
way for her title, but her recent 
success in a National Skating. 
Association gold test points to 
her as a competitor of dass. So 
for as records immediately 
available can tdl she is the first 
skater of either sex to gain this 
distinction for some years. 

Miss Powell has taken part in 
a British championship once 
previously, in 1984, when she 
finished eighth. Last year, un- 
fortunately, she was injured on 
the eve of foe event and has 
been unable to take part in any 
competition since. She is there- 
fore for from match-fit, which 
might explain foe modesty of 
Miss Bartlam’j expressed am- 
bition on her behalf of a place in 


the top six this week. 

Thai may wen serve for public 
consumption but deep down ! 
would expea foe trainer to have 
an eye on a medal, perhaps even 
on foe second place open to 
Britain in the European 
championships in February. 
The absence of a reliable triple 
jump would be a handicap at 
Sarajevo, but it does not nec- 
essarily ruin Miss PowelTs pros- 
pects on a more bumble stage 
this week. 

The first place, dearly, beck- 
ons to Miss Conway, for all her 
inability to follow up in senior 
competition so for her dazzling 
success in the British champion- 
ship last year at foe age of only 
14. 

' Hi ere is, encouragingly, a 
larger Geld than usual for foe 
men’s title, 10 in all, with Paul 
Robinson, of Blackpool and 
Billinghara. hoping at last to 
take the gold medal after four 
second places. Ashley Moore, of 
Sunderland, is an interesting 
convert from the roller rink, 
where he was Ihree times British 
champion. 


ATHLETICS 


Wilson’s 
plans 
for Budd 


Zola Sudd's commitment “to 
become properly British" is the 
biggest factor behind Harry 
Wilson's decision to take over 
the gniitance of her remarkable 
athletics career. 

Steve Ovett's long time men- 
tor, WBson will I gin coaching 
the 20-year-old middle distance 
runner when she returns front 
Sooth Africa in January. 

Bndd’s decision to live perma- 
nently in GniMford and to begin 
studying in an attempt to win a 
place at a British university, 
decisively influenced one id this 
country’s most experienced 
coaches. He said: “To be honest 
I wasn’t too happy at the way 
Zola was so quickly assimilated 
into the British set-up and the 
fact she didn’t seem able to 
make np her mind where she 
wanted to live.” 

Sudd's career has been sur- 
rounded by contr o versy ever 
since she was granted an instant 
passport in the summer of the 
1984 Olympics, and the Sooth 
African-born rumer was banned 
from England's Commonwealth 
(kuM train earlier Him year 
because she had not spent 
eaongb time in this country. 

Her fink-up with Wibw was 
arranged when Andy Norman, 
British athletics’ promotions 
officer, flew to Bloemfontein 
earlier this week. Peter 
Labaschagne, the schoolteacher 
who has so for guided Bwhfs 
career, is staying in Sooth Africa 
to condone his academic career. 

WHson, who began coaching 
Ovett IS years ago, said: “I have 
got to find out a lot mote about 
her strengths and 
weaknesses.”He is convinced 
that Badd must be encouraged to 
mix more with other athletes. 
She fe* been a cmfff d of being 
aloof from her British team 
colleagues hot WHson said: “I 
have insisted that she becomes 
part of the group of people I 
train at Crystal Palace every 
Saturday afternoon, and I think 
that will do her a lot of good."

His crucial putt failed and 
allowed Norman to retain his

sively, finished on 276, 12r-

ROWING 


Into uncharted waters 


By Jim Rail ton 


The Amateur Rowing Associ- 
ation (ARA) Council in London 
on Saturday took a big step 
forward by voting through next 
year’s budget of £375,000 and, 
in doing so. the approval in 
principle of a registration 
scheme. But these issues were 
not without opposition in a 
somewhat bizarre, truncated, 
council meeting. 

Apart from the privileged 
fourth estate and the ARA 
executives, foe detailed budget 
proposals had not been received 
by most councillors, although 
foe outline budget bad been 
widcly-circulaicd weeks before. 
It took up almost half an hour of 
foe committee's limited time for 
copies to be produced. 

Fortunately, foe ARA trea- 
surer, Ivan Pratt, was able to 
guide councillors skilfully 
through this potential minefield 
and the budget was approved by 
18 votes to seven. But foe 
budget estimate is to be financed 
Largely by a system of registra- 
tion and this was pushed 
through with 14 councillors for 
and nine against. 


Henley's chief Peter Coni, 
bad to remind colleagues that 
foe budget had to be approved, 
otherwise foe Sports Council 
grant could simply evaporate. 
The president, Neil Thomas, 
almost scythed down counter- 
proposals and amendments as 
many looked game for an all- 
night sitting. 

But foe president's eye had to 
be on foe clock and, in any case, 
there 'was a guillotine in the 
form of the caretaker. No doubt 
some councillors are still 
scratching their heads over foe 
implicauons. 

While the system of registra- 
tion is the way forward, further 
consideration has to be given to 
the cost to beginners in the sport 
and student contributions. 
There needs to be some more 
clear thinking on how registra- 
tion will be effected across foe 
board in the spon. But the 
ARA’s Saturday meeting was, 
despite its almost complex and 
bizarre moments, a necessary 
quick stop in the right direction.

Gordon averts 
a British 
whitewash 


Clever defence tactics and two 
well-taken victories pm Orleans 
2-1 ahead of Wolverhampton 
inthe first leg of foe two-match 
final of foe European club team 
championships in the Compton 
Park Activity Centre, Wolver- 
hampton, on Saturday (Nicolas 
Soames writes). 

Only Wolverhampton's 
heavyweight, * Elvis Gordon, 
fighting fast of all, managed to 
spare a whitewash in his contest 
by aggressively taking hold of 
the tall Frenchman. Laurens Del 
Colombo, and. after running 
him around the mat. exploded 
into a valley drop throw that 
completely pancaked his oppo- 
nent Del Colombo hobbled off 
foe mat with difficulty. 

Gordon's effort means 
■Wolverhampton do not have an 
impossible task in foe return on 
November 29, but it will be 
difficult For despite foe 2-1 
score, each member of the 
British team fought intelligently 
and with spirit — and still they 
could not win.

RACING: BRITTAIN’S STALWART BREAKS COURSE RECORD IN MEMORABLE JAPAN CUP VICTORY . ^ \ 

Jupiter Island signs off with Tokyo triumph Kennard Wames 


By Robert Carter 

Jupiter Island, partnered by 
Pat Eddery, brought his career 
to a fitting climax with a 
record-breaking triumph in 
the £382,775 Japan Cup in 
Tokyo yesterday. 

He won by a head from 
Allez Milord alter a dour 
battle in the final furlong 
during which the pair touched 
twice. Gre vilte Starkey wanted 
to object but, under Japanese 
rules, all inquiries must be 
initiated by the stewards. 
They viewed the head-on film 
and decided that no action 
was required. 

Starkey left the course in a 
hurry to catch his plane home 
but Geoff Lawson, represent- 
ing Guy Harwood, said: “No 
complain is. They did get dose 
but it was a case of six of one 
and half a dozen of the other.” 

He sportingly added: “If we 
did have to get beaten, Fm 
glad it was Clive Brittain’s 
horse that managed ft. He was 
very helpful earb'er in the 
week when AJJez Milord had 
trouble with his knee.” 

The free-running Allez Mi- 
lord had raced in second, 
behind the pacesetting 
Kushiro King, from the start 
He drew alongside the leader 
approaching the straight 
where Jupiter Island had 
moved up close behind, hav- 
ing been towards the rear until 
the final turn. 

Allez Milord hit the front 
over one fUrtong out, pressed 
by Jupiter Island, and rolled 
off a true line under pressure 
in the last 100 yards. Jupiter 
Island, who was a little ham- 
pered at that point himself 
bumped Allez Milord a few 
strides from the post

Royal Bond belies age 


Last year's Japanese St Le- 
ger winner, Miho Shinzan, 
was third followed by Rugby 
Bail, also fourth in this year's 
Japanese Derby, and the 
strongly-fancied New Zea- 
land-trained colt Waveriey 
Star. 

The other foreign runners 
all ran disappointingly. Caro- 
tene, from Canada, finished 
ninth. Triptych (Tony Cruz) 
was eleventh. Flying Pidgeon. 
the only American hope, 
twelfth and Tommy Way 
(Willie Carson) thirteenth of 
the 14 runners. Triptych broke 


fast but was soon settled in the 
rear and never appeared to be 
going well. Tommy Way was 
also trailing throughout 

Jupiter Island cut three- 
tenths of a second off the 
record set by the American- 
trained Maizy Doates in the 
first running of the Japan Cup 
five years ago. 

It was a triumph for trainer 
Clive Brittain and his staff 
who nursed the seven-year-okl 
back to full fitness after be was 
out of action from April to 
October. Jupiter Island 
cracked his hoof and con- 


tracted an abscess in the foot 
when finishing third to Dahar 
m CalifomiaThfs was his 
race and he will now be retired 
to stud.

A new £0175,000 chase at 
Leopardstown in February is 
now ob the agenda for Royal 
Bond, who made light of top 
weight and advancing years to 
win the Fo rtria Handicap Chase 
at Navaa on Saturday (Oar Irish 
Racing Correspondent writes). 

Just a few weeks short of his 
fourteenth birthday. Royal Bond 
is very much the grand old man 
of the Irish jmapmg scene, la his 
younger days he won over 
hurdles at Cheltenham and has 
retained his form remarkably 
veil since. 


He was ridden with good 
judgement by Pat Taaffe's 22- 
year-old son, Tom, who was 
having bis first mount over 
fences since taking a bad fell. 
Asked to nominate the horse 
he would most like to ride ha the 
Aintree- Grand National, an 
event his father won twice, Tom 
picked on Bold Agent and this 
10 -year-oM justified his judge- 
ment with a six-length win in the 
Navaa Supporters' Troytown 
Handicap Chase. He comes 
from an eight-horse stable run

Conditions 
favour 
Sabin Du 
Loir 

ByMandariii 

Sabin Do Loir, fevoured by 
the race conditions, can gain his 
first success since 1983 by 
beating Sheer Gold and Pike's 
Peak, in a fascinating contest for 
the West Midlands Hurdle at 
Wolverhampton this afternoon. 

David Munay-Smith's geld- 
ing ran three times last season 
and in the second of those 
chased home the Champion 
Hurdler, See You Then, in the 
Oteiey Hurdle at Sandown in 
February. 

He subsequently contested 
the Waterford Crystal Stayers’ 
Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festi- 
val and played a prominent role 
until three out where he made -a 
serious error and was polled up. 

Sheer Gold started joint- 
favourite for foal Cheltenham 
race and was lying second when 
felling at the last. She ran a fen- 
race on her reapppearance to 
finish third to Ibn Majed and 
Gave Brief and. with her stable 
in fine fonn, is likely to head the 
markeL 

However, in what may de- 
velop into a tactical battle, I feel 
she may prove vulnerable to a 
horse of Sabin Du Loir’s speed, 
especially as she is meeting my 
selection on 121 b worse terms 
than when they clashed at 
Cheltenham. 

Pike’s Peak was one of last 
season's leading novices but 
feces a formidable task in 
attempting to give weight to his 
elders here. With his stable yet 
to stiike form, this highly- 
promising five-year-old is likely 
to need the run. 

For the day's best bet, 1 look 
to Folkestone where Geata An 
(Jisce can defy his big weight 
against four modest rivals in the 
Otterden Handicap Chase. 

A useful staying novice two 
seasons ago when trained by 
Owen Brennan, my nap fol- 
lowed his recent Windsor win 
by giving supporters of 
Conquering a fright at Newbury 
od Friday, eventually going 
down by a length: 

He meets nothing of that 
calibre today and the feet that a 
trainer of Forster’s experience is . 
prepared to run a young chaser 
again so soon is a pointer in 
itself. 

At Southwell, I visualize the 
Easiertry brothers having a win- 
ner apiece with Peter sending 
out Just AHck (3.0) and Mick 
saddling BSckerstaffe (3.30). 



Hennessy defeat 


By Michael Sedy 

Les Kennard yesterday with importing Mew Zealand- 


claimed that John SpearirK’s 
decision to leave Run AwfSfaP 
in the Hennessy Cognac GoM 
Cup ai the four-day deciaranon 
stage had deprived Two Cop- 
pers. his lVWength runner-up, 
of the chance of hea ting 
Broadhealh in that stanuna- 
sappmg duel over the final four 

fences at Newbury on Saturday. 

-Of course the feet that the 

winner was canying 31b less 
made all the di&rMce," said 
the Somerset trainer. ^AIl the 
horses were very tired in the soft 
ground and we were coming 
hock at Brpadhcath at the 

fi nish. " 

The Newbury stewards have 
reported Spearing to the stew- 
ards of the Jockey Club to find 
out not only why Rim And Skip 
was left in at the four-day sage 
but also why the horse was not 
withdrawn on Friday. 

“Originally I was keeping my 
options open." was the trainer’s 
only comment yesterday. “And 
I couldn't take him out over- 
becausc there were difS- 


bred jumping stores. 

“Wi nning the SdrwtppCS with 

Bootfares was a w onder ful 
experience,'' he said yesterday. 

Saturday’s win was pretty 
rewarding as weiL I feel that 
Broadbeatb now earned the 
right to take on Forgxve'n Forget 
in the Ring George but Tm not 
sure where be u go in the 
meantime." 

Twoi COppers. together with 

his stable companion, Tnska, 
will now be aimed at the Welsh 
National and Maori Venture, a 
fast-finishing third on Saturday, 
will now attempt to repeat last 
year's win in toe Cbrak Book-

tune been a thorn in the side of 
the authorites and the connec-

So. although Spearing himself finished third, 36 lengths behind

“I thought he ran pretty well

Nicky Henderson. “He'll now 
follow the same pattern as See 
You Then two seasons ago. He'll 
go for the SGB Hire Shop 
Hurdle at Ascot on the way to 
the Champion Hurdle.** 
Henderson also bad news of

the race, an inquiry will help to 
clear the air and provide guid- 
ance for the future in these 
matters. 

However, although Kennard 
is entitled to feel aggrieved, a 
study of the video recording of 
the race suggests ihat 
Broadheath won with at least 
31b in hand. Apart from the fixst 
two home. Plundering and 
Strands Of Gold also had 
chances of winning at tire test 
but it was Broadbeath's ability 
to quicken that finally won the 
great race for David Barons's 
Kingsbridge stable. 

As every bandicapper knows 
to his cost, this is dm an easy 
problem to solve. Pan! Nicholls, 
the 24-year-old winning jockey, 
confirmed this when he said 
afterwards: “My main concent 
was to get Broadheatb settled. 
That mistake three out was a bit 
fair-raising but after that I felt 
we were always in control as be. 
always pulls out more when he's 
challenged”. 

Barons, aged 49, togetho- with 
his wife, the former point-to- 
point rider, Jenifer Retrace, has 
now been running one of the 
most successful racing stables in 
West Country history for 25 
yearn. They also operate a 1200- 
acre Sum and have recently 
started a business co n cerned 


“And I hope to be able to get 
so me fester work into him in the 
New Year before training him 
for the mqjor spring races.” 
Ladbrokes are only prepared to 
offer an unrealistic 20-1 against 
this brilliant but basically un- 
sound chaser for the Chelten- 
ham Gold Cup. 

David Hsworth, justifiably 
incensed at his lota) neglect by 
the media after Bam brook 
Again's impressive win. said: “I 
know RivCT Ceiriog is bound to 
improve buz we did win by a 

very kn»g way. The original plan 

was to go dosing hut after that 
well have to go for the Bula 
Hurdle at Chdienham just to 
see bow good be is.”

Arsenal 

Manchester City 


Like Mike Tyson, Arsenal 
keep bowling them ever. But 
unlike, die newest boxing 
sensation who is movin g ir- 
refutably towards un con tested 
supremacy. Arsenal's claims 
to their title remain very much 
disputed - as usual by their 
own manager and, more 
surprisingly, by Manchester 
Gty, their tenth and latest 
victims in 13 unbeaten 
matches. 

.Gty, third from bottom of 
the table are, of course, in no 
position to criticize ArsenaL 
They left Highbury in as 
battered a state as Henry 
Cooperxlid 20 yearn ago after a 
similarly forlorn attempt to 
hah the progress of youth. At 
least Cooper had more jus* 
tification. in daiming “he 
never hurt me” after his defeat 
against Gay, than Gty against 
ArsenaL . 

“If Arsenal are top of the 
League we've got no worries 
about relegation,” was the 
non-sequitnr offered by 
Jimmy Frizzell, the Manches- 
ter Gty manager. Someone 
had better inform him that 
relegation is invariably de- 
tided by What happens at the 
bottom rather than the top of 
the division. 

His more pertinent observa- 
tion that “Arsenal play to their 
strengths by putting the ball 


into the air where they’ve got 
height” still managed to sound 
like a criticism. He might just 
as weB have said that Tyson 
plays to his strength bywhack- 


FrizzeU remarked frostily. Is 
again refusing to recognize 
their championship potential, 
George Graham, the most 
significantly reluctant Arsenal

Frizzell would have been 
nearer the mark if he had 
protested that the two sides 
were unfairly matched since

we had got into top gear we 
would have won more

Where credit was most due 
but generally unforth coming 
was to the remarkable Arsenal 
defence, which was again the 
match-saver and not for the 
first time, the match- winner. 
Their mean record of six goals

get his third in three games. 

Considering how com- 
prehensively the City defence 
were outdistanced, the criti- 
cism by Dements, their long- 
suffering defender, was 
unseemly: “They’re like Wat- 
ford the way they belt the ball 
up to the giant and then 
compete for ft. They don't 
squeeze yon like Liverpool 
do." McNab, who was fortu- 
nate to stay around long 
enough for a close-up study of 
the opposition given his fre- 
quent indiscretions, was simi- 
larly stingy with his praise. 

But no one received more 
brickbats than Suc kling, the 
Gty goalkeeper, for not 
dominating his six-yard box in 
the land of the giants. “Some 
might excuse him because of 
the wind but I wouldn’t,” 


right sort of foundations on 
which to base a championship 
argument. 

Anderson, with ins third 
goal in his last four matches, 
bid down the gauntlet to his 
forwards while Adams’s 
fourth goal of the. season came 
in the midst of another su- 
perbly stubborn defensive dis- 
play against a Manchester Gty 
side who, for all their carping, 
looked far too good to go 
down. 

Defence is Arsenal's real 
strength and one should not 
forget that as in boxing the

— Advertisement with flaws 


By David Powell 


West Ham United 1 

Aston Villa ■, 1 


“It was a great advert few 
football,” Billy McNtifl, the 
Aston Villa manager, suggested. 
Bui good advertisements need 
to convince the buyer that the 
product is sound, so Villa and 
West Ham had better get back to 
the studios. The people who 
made this one left the flaws 
exposed: two goals of apparent 
quality were the consequence of 
appalling mistakes. 

West Ham went ahead when 
Co tree exercised the dose con- 
trol which complements his 
prolific scoring to dance round 


Offered the chance to play a 
short corner into the space made 
by Dorigo, Norton opted in- 
stead for the direct crass. But it 
dropped short to McAvennie 
and Keown, Elliott and Evans, 
Villa's big three central defend- 
er who had conre up for the trill, 
were left stranded. Ward found 
Cottee with a 40-yard pass into 
the bole left unplugged by 
Dorigo, leaving Norton to pay 
the price of a goal fora ksson in 
corner tactics. 

In a-firsi half of few genome 
chances, VBla threatened only 
when Thompson was fed high 
balls into the box. Tbe raessage 
for West .Ham should have been 


of his 16 matches this season, 
bis contribution off the ball 
remains important. Having said 
that, there were signs on Sat- 
urday that his tally of five goals 
this season is worrying him. The 
sign of a frustrated marksman is 
when he starts to hit speculative 
shots. 

Villa had the best chance to 
steal a late winner but poor 
Norton's shot was blocked by 
Gale. McNeill was not 
complaining, though. A point 
from Upton Park is always a 
good result, whoever yon are. 
And when you are Aston Villa, 
to take one without a booking or 
a sending off is achievement 
indeed.

Crashing the gears 


By Simon O'Hagan 


Sheffield Wednesday ... 1 
Luton Town 0 


As an exercise in demonstrat- 
ing the strength in depth of the 
first division this match was a 
huge disappointment — lacking 
in imagination, blighted by 
Wednesday's offside trap, won 
by a scrappy goal and played in a 
spirit of tetchiness which even- 
tually spilled over into violence. 

Both sides are among the top 
nine dubs in the table but the 
idea that either might win the 
championship must have 
seemed faintly ridiculous to any 
impartial observers at 
Hillsborough on Saturday. 

At their best Wednesday are 
an exhilarating team, capable of 
combining relentless pace with 
impressive understanding. Alas, 
all we had here were the lurches 
of a driver who keeps crashing 
Lhe gears. In the absence of 
Chamberlain, an omission 
which clearly does not go down 
very well with the Wednesday 


supporters, their attack looked 
predictable and ponderous and 
the standard of 1 their crossing 
was appalling. 

Mentally and physically, Lu- 
ton were by far the nimbler side. 


but although Brian Stein missed 
two good first half chances, they 
never really supported the front 
two of Mark Stein and Newell, 
who in any case were repeatedly 
caught offside. Eventually 
Wednesday wore Luton down, 
scoring the decisive goal in the 
73rd minute when Chapman 
headed down Marwood's cross 
and Megson bundled the bafl in. 

By that time everybody was 
pretty fed up. on the field and off 
it,, and in the space of three 
minutes just before the end a 
series of nasty exchanges re- 
sulted in bookings for Foster, of 
Luton, and Chapman and Hart, 
of Wednesday.

beat Independent Schools South 
4-1 yesterday in blustery con- 
ditions at Wolverhampton 
Grammar School. After early 
sparring it was the hard-working 
Allen who had the North's first 
shot at goal. He. Willetts and 
McNamara combined well 
throughout the game. 

McNamara, having made two 
good opportunities, deserved 
the chance to score from a loose 
ball and made no mistake about 
it to put the North one up after 
20 minutes. 

In the quarter of an hour 
before half-time the South 
looked threatening and Lee 
made ground to head against the 
Northern bar. Douglas- Pennant 
equalized from the rebound. 

In the second half the North- 
ern forwards, now supported by 
Griffiths in midfield and with 
the wind in their favour, looked 
more dangerous. After five min- 
utes, Round cashed in on a 
defensive error to make it 2-1 
and IS minutes later scored 
again with a header from a 
comer.

McNamara scored the goal of

Navratilova 
hovers 
on brink of 
defeat 


From Bany Wood 
New York 


On a weekend when four of 
London's seven first division 
sides were beaten, Chelsea’s 5-1 
home defeat by the bottom club, 
Newcastle United, was the most 
painful. The patience of 
Chelsea’s supporters, as they see 
their team languishing near the 
foot of the table, is wearing thin 
and the main target of their 
criticism is the manager, John 
Hollins. 

This latest setback led to calls 
for his resignation and a 9-2 win 
by Chelsea’s reserves at Reading 
increased the pressure on 
Hollins to make more first team 
changes. 

Saturday's match began 
brightly enough for Chelsea with 
Dune, recalled to the ride, 
giving them the lead. However, 
the picture changed dramati- 
cally when Thomas scored twice 
for Newcastle and then a goal by 
Beardsley removed all doubts 
about the result. 

Qaeda's Park Rangera' 1-0 
reverse at Ok! Trafford was not 
unexpected as Manchester 
United were anxious to gain 
their first win under Alex Fer- 
guson. That anxiety probably 
accounted for several missed 
chances and United bad to be 
content with a Sivebaek goal 
from a free kick. 

Charlton Athletic’s slide 
continued when Southampton 
beat them 3-1 at Selhurat Park. 
With Southampton 2-1 ahead. 
Chariton's goalkeeper, Johns, 
was sent off 11 minutes from the 
end for fouling Wallace. 
Southampton took advantage of 
Chariton's weakened state to 
increase their lead through Case. 

There were 35 goals in 
Saturday's first division pro- 
gramme and six of them were at 
Vicarage Road where Watford 
destroyed Leicester City 5-1. 
Watford had five marksmen in 
Rostron, Barnes, Falco, Calla- 
ghan and Jacket! (penalty). 
Smith made a late reply for 
Leicester. 


New York 

Martina Navratilova had her 

crown knocked askew by Pam 
Shrivcr in the semi-finals of the 
Virginia Slims championships 
here but managed to squeeze 
through 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 to reach a 
best -oP-five sets final against 
Steffi Graf. 

“1 thought it was over," the 
world No 1 said. "The way Pam 
was serving *1 said, well this may 
be it' but I'd as soon lose to her if 
I had to lose to anyone. But I 
still wasn't ready to throw the 
towel in." 

That fighting spirit enabled 
her to pull out her victory in the 
temh game of the third set by 
breaking Miss Shriver's service. 
Until then the match could have 
swung either way as Miss Shri- 
vcr, playing with a new-found 
confidence, matched Miss 
Navratilova in many areas. 

Both served superbly, re- 
lumed deeply and displayed 
great aerobatic skills. In the first 
set. however, it appeared that 
the gap that has been narrowing 
between Miss Navratilova and 
her friend and doubles partner 
was once again in danger of 
becoming a chasm. But from the 
second set Miss Sh river re- 
captured her battling qualities 
and by the third set bad Miss 
Navratilova seriously con- 
cerned. 

“There’s not much between 
us now," Miss Shriver said. 
“The last two times we've 
played it's been 6-4 in the third 
and I could have won both 
matches.” 

Miss Graf regained much of 
the form that was missing earlier 
in the week as she turned aside 
the challenge of Helena Sukova 
7-6, 3-6, 6-1. 

• J immy Connors, the top seed, 
fell to Scou Davis 6-2, 6-2 in the 
quarter-finals of the $279,000 
Houston men's tournament and 
lost all possibility of qualifying 
for next month's Masters tour- 
nament in New York. Needing 
wins in the quarter-final and 
semi-final to pass Andres Go- 
mez of Ecuador in the grand 
prix points standings and move 
into contention for the eighth 
and final Masters berth, Con- 
nors was broken twice in each 
set and squandered five break 
points against Davis's service in 
the first set. 


Us and them 


Angela Barrett, the first Brit- 
ish player to win a Wimbledon 
singles championship, after the 
second World War, had a bad 
line decision in The Times on 
Saturday. Expressing interest in 
a suggestion that the United 
States Wightman Cup team 
should be restricted to players 


boro in today's equivalent of the 
original 13 British colonies. Mis 
Barrett said that this “would 
give us ah outside chance of 
winning occasionally." Between 
the written and printed versions 
the word “us" was somehow 
transformed into “the US", thus 
reversing her meaning. The 
printed version implied wishful 
thinking by some patriotic Brit- 
ish imp engaged in the tricky 
process of newspaper produc- 
tion. Mrs Barrett’s actual com- 
ment was more practical

Miss Panova's versatility was 
balanced by her harmony and 
flowing grace as a dancer and

CRICKET: AUSTRALIAN STATE SIDE PUT MEDIOCRE TOURISTS TO SHAME 


Ingland without defence after 
sinking into the old routine 


From John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent, Newcastle, New Sooth Wales 


It has noi taken England 
long to sink back into the gully 
from which they emerged to 
win the first Test match. New 
South Wales beat them here 
yesterday by eight wickets, 
with a day and a half to spare, 
after bowling them out in their 
second innings for 82 — the 
lowest total made by an 
English side in Australia since 
the tour of 1936-37. 

England had been suf- 
ficiently outplayed since Sat- 
urday morning to feel some 
relief that they will not be 
lacing the same opposition, 
particularly the New South 

Wales bowlers, in the second 
Test match starting in Perth 
on Friday. 

There was no comparison 
between the way Whitney and 
Gilbert bowled in England’s 
second innings on Saturday 
and how England bowled 
yestCTday. or for that matter 
with how Australia bowled in 
Brisbane. The Australian side 
for Friday is due to be 
announced this afternoon, 
and it can and should be 
strengthened. 

Gatling said that after a Test 
match leading players could 
find it difficult to become 
motivated. The captain was 
not playing himself, and be 
can hardly nave expected to. 
convince anyone in his de- 
fence of those who were. 
Anyway. Athey. Broad. Slack, 
Whitaker. Foster. French and 
Small had everything to play 
for. It was not a good pitch, 
but it was no worse for one 
side than the other and noth- 
ing like bad enough to account 
for the way England were 
skittled out in their second 


Slack took slightly more 
dislodging, 37 for seven was a 
laughable score. As in die first 
innings. Whitaker played a 
firm stroke or two before 
getting out caught at slip . He 
looked to be committing him- 
self to the front foot when 
baiting in Australia is more of 
a back-foot game. 


Botham seemed prepared to 
do until, driving wishfully at 
the pitch of the ball, he was 
bowled by Gilbert. 

TTie best partnership of the 
innings was the last in which 
Edmonds and Small took the 
score from 53 for nine to 82. It 
is hardly an exaggeration to 
say that Small looked the best 
batsman of the side. Even he.

HW: 


Imran Khan's burning am- 
bition to win the third Test 
match litre with West Indies, 
and with it ihcseries. in what is 
his last home i csl receded here 
on Saturday. Pakistan dropped 
crucial catches and he himself 
was plagued with a stomach 
upset 

Only it hours remain and 
with the pitch unexpectedly 
becoming easier, the teams 
spent yesterday's rest day con- 
scious that a draw has become 
the most probable result. The 
series stands at 1-1. 


Once the sides level-pegged 
on first innings. Pakistan's 
hopes rested on taking control 
when West Indies went in again 
half an hour before lea. 

Grecnidge went cheaply but 
Haynes and Richardson en- 
sured nothing further untoward 
happened. West Indies resume 
today 85 runs ahead with nine 
wickets in hand, with two days 
left. 

Imran, who has been ap- 
pointed captain for the forth- 
coming one-day tournaments in 
Sharjah and Perth, and also for 
the tour to India in January, had 
the strength to bowi only three 
overs. After that he turned to his 
spinners, whose close catchers 
let them down. It was disci- 
plined. effective batting by West 
indies and a sad period of play 
for Pakistan. 

Cricket can be a maddening 
game and it was Ramiz Raja 
who ran the full gamut of fate’s 
ironies. His sheet anchor 62 
(two fours), spread through 97 
overs and 408 minutes, ensured 
that Pakistan avoided any first 
innings deficit, even if he was

Qadir. with his fractured left t

the same turn as he did on 
Thursday and there is no doubt 
that the pitch is playing slower 
and lower than earlier in the 
match. Whether West Indies 
will be able to score quickly 
enough today to gave themselves 
enough time to bowl Pakistan 
out a second time remains to be 
seen. 

Earlier Qadir, batting one- 
handed, swatted eight runs as 
Pakistan got to within one run 
of the West Indies total. Butts 
mostly bowled one end while 
Richards used pace at tire other, 
as the innings ran its course.

next week in order to make

rest of Pakistan 's heavy pro-

The whole thing smacked of 
mediocrity. 

It is no disgrace to lose to 
New South Wales — this was, 
in feci, the thirteenth time it 
has happened since the two 
sides first played ll-a-side 
matches in 1877. 


though, was hit a painful Wow 
on the foot, which prevented 


on the foot, which prevented 
him from bowling more than 
one over when New South 
Wales went in, at 11.10, to 
make 99 to win. 

It was announced before 
play started that if the match 
was over by 2.30 the sides 
would play a limited-overs 
game of 25 overs each. Eng- 
land were known not to be 
keen about this, their reason 
being the somewhat spurious, 
one that the pitch would 
further have undermined their 
batsmen's confidence. 

But with New South Wales 
taking 20.1 overs of the after- 
noon to score the remaining 
36 runs they needed, as though 
they, too, would rather call it a 
day, and England in no hurry 
to bowl their overs, it was 10 
minutes past the deadline 
when WeHham made the win- 
ning hit. 

Whereas Whitney and Gil- 
bert had bowled straight, fairly 
fast and to a good length, 
Foster was altogether more 
erratic. Emburey, leading the 
side for the first time in a first- 
class match, was also some 
way below his best, as was 
French behind the stumps. 
Emburey seemed intent on 
bowling flat, thinking the 
pitch too slow for him to 
throw the ball up, and when he 
strayed down the log side 
French was ill at ease. The 12 
byes which the wicketkeeper 
allowed were all off Emburey. 


Illingworth and Dexter, New 
South Wales declared at 532 
for six — Norman O’Neill, 
whose son saw the state side 
home yesterday, scoring a 
brilliant 243. That, too, was 
depressing, but it was not 
feral 

While amazed at the way 
the touring side buckled, 
Australians point to Brisbane 
and say that England are never 
more dangerous than when 
they have seemed in disarray. 
We, for our part, know better 
than that The batting is 
nothing if not vulnerable, and 
it is no help at all that no one 
played a worthwhile innings 
on this visit to Newcastle. 


In the most perfect weather 
(a complete contrast to last 
Friday and Saturday), 
England’s defeat was received 
with a curious indifference by 
a good crowd They had been 
absorbed during the anticipa- 
tion of it, yet they greeted it 
quietly when it came, except 
for a handful who gave Eng- 
land the bird. Had the main 
surfing carnival of the Austra- 
lian year not been in progress 
just down the road, to provide 
alternative and more 
spectacular entertainment, 
more might have been upset 
than were at being denied a 
knockabout game. 


Bowler is

Sydney (Reuter) — The 
Queensland fast bowler, Craig 
McDermott, omitted . from 
Australia's side for the first Test 
mitfh against F "C bni <i pressed

on the third day of their Shef-

RUGBY LEAGUE 


A glimmer of hope rises up 
from the cinders of defeat 


By Keith Macklra 


Great Britain 15 

Australia 24 


The pride of Lions was re- 
stored at Wigan on Saturday, 
and it took a questionable 
penalty try award by the French 
referee, Julien Rascagneres, to 
let Australia off tbe hook in this 
gripping third international, 
sponsored by Whitbread 
Trophy. 

At 12-12 Great Britain were 
tearing into the Australians, and 
the ecstatic Central Park crowd 
could see visions of a famous 
and totally unexpected victory 
wiping out the wretched mem- 
ories of tbe first two inter- 
nationals. Then Wigan's after- 
match -g g nin g , Wally Lewis, the 
inspiring Australian captain, got 
Shearer away on the right. He 
kicked over the head ofLydon, 
and the British wing player 
brought him down with a tackle. 
Immediately Rascagneres 
pointed to the post andawanfed. 
the penaltytry. 

Television and videotape ev- 
idence, aids which a referee does 
not have readily to han d, in- 
dicated that Shearer’s kick 
might have gone dead, or could 
have been covered by Goodway, 
but the uy was awarded and 
O’Connor’s goal gave the 
Australians an 18-12 lead and 
breathing space. 


Nevertheless the magnificent 
British fighters lifted their game 
to hitherto unseen hei ght*, ■ and 
pulled bade to 15-18 with a 
penalty from . Lydon and 
dropped goal from Schofield. It 
was Lewis who provided tbe 
touch ofgmius to sink Britain’s 
brave effort. He broke on the 
right, dummied to Kenny and 
Shearer, and as the defence 
moved across cut inside to the 
post for O’Connor to add an- 
other easy goal. 

Britain mlvaged honour and 
self-respect, and never have 1 
seen a crowd leave a ground 
apparently happy in defeat. 
They knew that they had wit- 
nessed a brave and skilf ul 
performance by Great Britain, 
and that the two tries scored by 
Schofield crowned moves which 
equalled anything the Kan- 
garoos produced throughout the 
tour. Schofield, the gundog of 
British rugby, has an uncanny 
knack of being in the right place 
at the right time, and he has 
touched down in each of the 
three internationals. 

There seemed little chance of 
a British revival when Australia 
swept into a 12-0 lead. Dowling 
slipped Miles through a huge 
gap within two minutes. Then a 
brilliant exchange saw the ball 
move swiftly through five pairs 
of hands before Lindner ran 
through another wide gap. 
O'Connor kicked both goals. 

In the remaining 15 minutes 


before half-time. Great Britain 
gathered themselves to scare a 
superb try mid pound the 
Australian line. Gregory and 
Pinner, who both bad outstand- 
ing games, seat Myler up the 
midcue and he drew Jack to send 
in Schofield, GDI adding the 


Eariy in the second half Great 
Britain produced another sharp 
move which ended in Schofield 
backing up Crooks and Stgthen- 
son to dive over, Lydon kicking 

a magnificent tou ch tin e goaL 
Central Park erupted with the 
noise, hut then came the one! 
ruling by Rascagneres. and 
Britain's courageous battle had 
been in vain. Y« perhaps it was 
not, for British Rugby League at 
dub, amateur, youth and 
schoolboy level must have re- 
gained confidence after this 
rousing match. 

After the gime Lewis stated 
for Wfgan at a reputed £2.000 a 
match, and will make his first 
appearance lor Wigan against 
Warrington on New Year’s Day.

St Helens triumph tarnished 


Some of the gloss was taken 
off the crushing St Helens 50-10 
victory over HuD, their 24th 
consecutive league win. with the 
departure from the field of Mark 
EUa, the New Zealand centre, 
with a recurrence of his ham- 
string injury yesterday (Keith 
Macki in writes). The Saints 
must now be seriously consider 
cancelling Elia's contract and 
asking him to return home. 

Half-back NeU Holding was 
the outstanding player in the 
nine-try romp, scoring two tries 
hims elf and having a hand in 
most of the others. 

Warrington and Wigan kept 
in touch with St Helens at the 
top of tbe first division table 
with hard-earned wins against 
Halifax and Barrow. Paul 


Bishop, another lively halfback, 
inspired Warrington's 18-12 win 
over Halifax, creating tries lor 
Meadows and Forster and Idck- 

iD Bra 0 lfo^ l8 NortherB were 
beaten at home by Oldham, 
despite a try from Terry Holmes 
which put Northern in front. 
The second row forward Mick 
Worral was the key man in 
Oldham's fight back, scoring a 
fine try and kicking three goals 
in Oldham's late flourish. 

Salford made ft two wins in a 
row by surprising Whines at The 
Willows. Their star player was 
Terry O'Shea, who scored two 
tries before halftime and added 
goasl for both tries.

Worcestershire romped into 
the quarter-finals of the County 
Championship yesterday with a 
resounding victory over the 
Army on the superb artificial

In their next - match, 
Worcestershire will play 
Staffordshire, who defeated 
them 2-0 in the Midlands final 
last week, and among the 
Staffordshire spies yesterday 
was Imran Sherwani. their best 
forward and a member of the 
England World Cup team. 

Ken Partington, apart from 
scoring three goals, had a hand 

in the other three, taking every 
advantage of the open spaces. 
The Array were reasonably 
sharp in attack, with Gordon 
and Jolly prominent, hot were 
unstable in defence: 

By half-time, the Army were

having scored five goals. Knott's 
conversion ofa penalty stroke in 
the ninth minute was followed

Tyson heralds the age of the fighter 


From Sriknmar Sen, Boxing Correspondent, Las Vegas 
Boxing has a new champion m rise above the waves of 


Boxing has a new champion 
and a new face — Mike 
Tv so a, a 20-year-old from 
New York. In destroying 
Trevor Berbick, the Worid 
Boxing Council heavyweight 
champion, in two minutes and 
25 seconds of the second 
round at the Hilton Center 
here on Saturday, be may have 
ushered in the dawning of a 
new age in boxing that could 
herald the end of the 
Muhammed Ali era. 

Since Ali, as Cassius Clay, 
won the world title and re- 
wrote the textbooks 22 years 
ago, the boxer using his size 
dominated the fighter. Now it 
could be the turn of the 
fighter. “2 warn to be like John 
L Sullivan” Tyson said. 
"There’s no-one luce him.” 

Tyson has been acclaimed 
as the youngest heavyweight 
worid champion, breaking 
Floyd Patterson's record of 21 
years. 10 months and 26 days, 
on the strength of lifing die 
WBC title. But, really, he still 
needs to overcome Tim 
Witherspoon, the Worid Box- 
ing Association champion, or 
Tony T ubbs. the two of whom 
meet on December 12. and 
Michael Spinks, the Inter- 
national Boxing Federation 
champion, in the series to 
unity the three titles to be 
accepted as a figure of Ali’s 
greatness. 

He is certainly beading in 
that direction. It would have 
been difficult to find someone 
in the capacity 8.300 crowd 
who would have disputed that 
Tyson is well on his way to the 
undisputed title. If he suc- 
ceeds in beating the other two 
champions, nothing short of 
another supreme Ah will take 
it away from him. As Tyson 
said afterwards: ”1 am the 
youngest worid champion and 
I will be the oldest.” 

When a left hook finally 
sent the 6ft 2Vbin Berbick 
thrashing about the floor in a 
swimming motion as he tried 

RUGBY UNION 

Bath to 
check on 
Robson 

By David Hands 
Rugby Correspondent 

Bath, the John Player Spe- 
cial Cup holders for the last 
three years, wfll discuss with 
David Robson, their assistant 
coach, his visit last week tp 
watch the Australian rugby 
league side training before 
deciding whether to take any 
action. 

Their concern arises largely 
from a local newspaper report 
from which, some senior mem- 
bers of the dub suggested, it 
could be inferred that Robson 
was acting as an official dnb 

representative. 

He was not available over 
the weekend, bat the report 
suggests that he and Tom 
Hudson, director of physical 
education at Bath University 
and, up to last season, a 
member of Bath’s coaching 
panel, went til Leeds to watch 
the Australians prepare for 
Saturday’s final international 
against Great Britain. 


unconsciousness that were try- 
ing to drown him, one had the 
distinct feeling that what 
opposition there remained in 
the rest of the worid was of 
little consequence. For. as 
Tyson's manager, Jim Jacobs, 
saj ri: **From this point he is 
going lo be 40 per cent better 
and that is an ominous spectre 
for the other heavyweights.” 

Tyson, who was having his 
28th contest in 18 months, 
showed a remarkable maturity 
for his 20 years, even to the 
point of calming down Jacobs 
in his trailer before the fight 
with the words “it is only 
natural that you should feel 
nervous before a fight. Jim”. 
He then went into the ring to. 
dominate the contest thor- 
oughly from the first exchange 
of Blows. 

He was attired in his usual 
black trunks and boots and 
was sweating heavily, having 
wanned up in the trailer on 
the heavy pads. "He was 
throwing pineapples out 
there," Jacobs said. Berbick, a 
minister of the Moments of 
Miracles Church, Las Vegas, 
tried to steal Tyson’s thunder 
in the psychological battle by 
also turning up in black and 
with a red cross on his trunks. 
But he looked nervous and 
licked bis lips constantly. The 
storm could not be averted. 

The champion made the 
mistake of carrying the fight to 
Tyson. “I wanted to prove I 
could take his best shots but 
he threw them from very 
strange angles,” Berbick said. 
In those four minutes and 
three seconds of boxing, 
Berbick managed to land only 
13 punches out of the 36 that 
he threw. Tyson, on the other 
hand, threw 106 and landed 
59. 

With each punch Tyson 
broke down Berbick’s will to 
box and. by the end of the 
■first Berbick could not even 
remember that be was a more

Staring defeat in the face: Tyson (right) gives the former champion, Berbick, a dose-up view of Ids ferocious jnmching power 


than capable boxer who had 
gone the distance with Larry 
Holmes, beaten AIL and lifted 
the title from Pinklon 
Thomas. 

With a minute to go in the 
first round, two right hands 
stunned Berbick. The cham- 
pion waved Tyson closer. 
Tyson obliged. A right and a 
left sent Berbick starring

pained expression on his face; 
almost as if he was about to 
cry like a little boy who had 
had a sweet taken away from 
him by a bully. Berbick's arms 
waved about in the air as if 
they did not belong to him and 
it seemed all over but for the 
bell, which came to his aid. 
Still like a little boy, Berbick 
stuck his tongue out at Tyson. 
That was where the fight was 
won by the challenger. 


In the second round, what 
Jacobs calls the Joe Louis 
Syndrome — a state where a 
fear of Tyson drains away the 
ability of the opponent to 
think and act — took over.

tion. “I knew then that this

with care and firing 
adventurous drops and over-

form of one of Britain’s most 
experienced professionals. 


The Beeson who broke 
through in 1 984 was a talented 
county league player more 
concerned with his engineer- 
ing job at a Gateshead hospital 
than with top squash. In the 
past two years, with sponsor- 
ship- from Inter-City, he has 
benefitted from play on the 
professional circuit. 

On the all-transparent Per- 
spex court specially mounted 
at Bristol’s Temple Meads 
Station, the 26-year old 
Tynesider attacked Briars, the 
third seed, without inhibition.

Thome put 
to flight 
by Drago 

By a Correspondent 

Tony Drago, Malta's only 
professional and the youngest 
survivor in the .£300,000 
Tennents UK Open at Pres- 
ton, swept impressively to- 
wards the first major quarter- 
final appearance of his career 
yesterday. 

Drago, aged 21 in Septem- 
ber and plainly homesick for 
his native Valeria, shook off 
any lingering depression with 
a burst of high break building 
to open a 6-1 first session lead 
in his best of 17 frame third 
round match with Willie 
Thome, the worid No. 7. 

Drago produced successive 
breaks of 30 to open a 2-0 lead 
and although Thome briefly 
found bis touch with a break 
of 67 to take the third frame, 
Drago responded with further 
breaks of 49, 57 and 56 to 
clinch the next three frames 
inside 31 minutes. Drago then 
led 55-1 in the final frame 
before Thorne hit back with a 
48 clearance to the pink and 
force a black ball finish. 
Thome seemed to have the 
safety battle in control as he 
left the black resting tightly 
against the to cushion, but 
Drago scorned any soft option 
hammering a high speed dou- 
ble into a bottom corner 
pocket to snatch the frame. 

Foulds was another young 
professional in top form. He 
compiled a series of big breaks 
to lead 5-2 over White, his 
stablemale and the world No 
5. Foulds sunk a 90 clearance 
in the first frame but fell 
behind 2-1 as White conjured 
up decisive breaks of 39 and 
40. But Foulds then took 
control

their feet as one. 

Tyson turned and walked 
towards his jubilant corner. 
Jacobs jumped in. Tyson 
kissed him, “Do you think 
Cus liked that?” he said to 
Jacobs. 

Afterwards, Tyson said: “I 
think Cus would have been 
telling all those fighters up 
there there’s my man , there'. I 
don’t think much about Cus 
but 1 know he is always with

Not even the gods coukl 
diminish the quality of the 
135th Merseyside derby. The 
local gales, void enough to 
transform the mouth of the 
nearby river into a sea of white 
horses and strong enough to 
unnerve all the drivers of 
high-sided vehicles in the area, 
merely refreshed it 

Those who watched it live 
on television yesterday after- 
noon might not have appre- 
ciated that Goodison Part was 
like a wind tunnel. The odd 
balloon, careering across the 
screen like a low flying kite, 
would have offered a clue 
without fully illustrating the 
difficulty of the conditions 
and the problems they posed. 

Less talented sides would 
have been reduced to a giant- 
sized version of blow football, 
outdoor “subbuteo” under a 
cold and wet November sky. 
Instead the standard of the 
play was so high and so 
consistent that the wintry 
storm appeared to be no more 
powerful than a summer 
breeze. 

The fixture itself was 
temptestous. Derbies invari- 
ably are. But the agression, 
apart from the illegitimate 
assualts of Langley and 
Sbeedy for which both were 
booked midway through the 
second half was as controlled 
as every other feature of a 
game that was never dull, 
seldom unimaginative and al- 
ways purpose fuL • 

Within the framework of 
the fiery passion, that was as 
audible on the pitch as it was 
evident on it, lay a collection 
of brains that remained cool 
inspite of being forced to work 
at blowing speed. The level of

land during the winter.

the presence of the BBC’s 
cameras and of the foul 
weather. They generated the 
atmosphere of a Cup tie. 

It usually is when Everton 
and Liverpool come across 
each other these days. Of their 
five previous meetings this 
year, four of them involved a 
piece of silverware. The prize 
yesterday, at the end of the 
first scoreless event on 
Merseyside in four seasons, 
was shared, and deservedly so.

The dubs also remain levd 
overall, with 47 wins apiece. 

Everton, who are now be- 
latedly and ominously 
approaching frill strength, 
claimed the moral victory. 
They can consider themselves 
unfortunate not to have been 
awarded a penalty midway 
through the first half. 
Lawrenson. bemused by 
Heath’s turn on the edge ofthe 
area, seemed to bring him 
down inside it. 

They also struck the wood- 
work on the hour. A corner by 
Sbeedy, creatively the most 
brilliant star in the sparkling 
cast, was nodded on by Sharp, 
and Heath, not for the first 
time in the afternoon, eluded 
the taller figures around him 
to bead against the bar. 

Liverpool, employing a 
sweeper and elastically chang- 
ing shape by intermittently 
moving their full backs into 
midfield, can point to several 
openings of their own. Almost 
aU of them fell to Rush, who 
could have climbed closer to
